Asunto: [Reminder] Response to your LC Comment -2398 on Media Ontology spec

Dear Jose,

The Media Annotations Working Group has responded (see email bellow) to 
the comments you sent [1] on the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the 
Ontlology for Media
Resource 1.0 published on 08 June 2010.

The deadline for responding to our proposal was October 09-oct-2010.
We have not receive any message from you.
If we don't get a response by the end of this week (Saturday 16th 
October), we will consider that you have fully agreed to our proposal.
We can not delay more the publication track of the Ontology for Media
Resource 1.0.






Dear Jose,

The Media Annotations Working Group has reviewed the comments you sent
[1] on the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the Ontlology for Media
Resource 1.0 published on 08 June 2010.
Thank you for having taken the time to review the document and to send
us comments.

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below.
Please review it carefully and *let us know by email at
public-media-annotation@w3.org if you agree with it* or not before
deadline date [09-oct-2010].
In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific
solution for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group.
If such a consensus cannot be achieved, you will be given the
opportunity to raise a formal objection which will then be reviewed by
the Director during the transition of this document to the next stage in
the W3C Recommendation Track.


For the Media Annotations Working Group,
Thierry Michel,

MAWG Resolution:

As it is mentioned in the Ontology for Media Resource 1.0, Status of
this Document section; "The Working Group expects to advance this
specification to Recommendation Status".

By "our lightweight approach to mappings", I assume that you refer to
the lack of formal semantics or of (recommendation of) use of OWL
constructs in the document. Our definition of Ontology is equally
lightweight: a shared and agreed-upon set of classes and properties. As
we do not enforce these classes and properties to be modeled in OWL, we
also described the mappings with as few semantic commitments as
possible: the mappings can be implemented in XSLT, in Java or whatever
language/paradigm a user might be interested in. The mappings are
therefore described in simple prose. An RDF version of the Media
Ontology is being produced in the Working Group, and an RDF/OWl version
of the mappings can also be considered, but formal and strong OWL
constructs are very constraining in semantics, and hard to maintain in a
consistent manner between vocabularies we have no control over. We
therefore decided to describe the mappings, still in prose, but with
reference to the SKOS vocabulary rather than in terms of OWL constraints."

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 publication 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 respond to you further email
The current mapping tables will be included in the Media Ontology
Recommendation into a normative section. To keep this list of formats
open, we also plan to track future mappings in an informative WG Note to
allow description of mappings for future formats. These mappings may
serve as input for a future version of a Media Ontology Resources
