I would like to formally object to the omission of an audio/x-speex
quality parameter from the API for Media Resource draft, and omission
of speex and vp8 from the Ontology for Media Resource draft.

RESOLUTION of the Woryking Group:

The mappings tables included in the Ontology specification are 
established from the Media Ontology's core properties to various 
multimedia metadata formats. This list of formats is not closed, nor 
does it pretend to be exhaustive. A future version of this specification 
MAY include additional mappings if a need or use case is established for 
these new mappings.

You will read this statement in the Ontology specification.

To focus on your request to include VP8 and speex in our Ontology, the 
mappings tables are intended for multimedia *metadata formats*.

- VP8 is an open video compression format (codedc).
- Speex is a free audio codec for Free Speech.

These are not *metadata formats*, and therefore not meant to be listed 
in our mapping table.

The working is open to addition of more metadata formats. If there are 
particular metadata formats that you would like to see included in this 
specification, please bring your expertise to the working group and we 
invite you to join the Media Annotations Working Group.
