Dear all,


regarding the video resource model [1] proposed by Silvia: do we assume that
any video (or media) resource will appear as described in the model, i.e.,
media resources packed in a container format? Various media resources are
available as elementary bitstreams, not packed in any container format
(e.g., mp3 audio files). We are working towards a format-independent
URI-based fragment identifier mechanism, but what do we mean with 'format'?
Coding formats, container formats, or both? I prefer both, since we cannot
demand that all the media on the web is packed within a container IMO. 

Hence, for the moment, the model for media resources represents a 'full
option' media resource, containing almost every possible media track and
packed in a container. Maybe we should also specify which subsets are
possible for this model?
