Will do what I can, but I'd rather promise the updates for after the
long weekend...

OK, will do.

OK, will do.

Hmm... most of these requirements represent a framework that we have
set ourselves for our work. In particular the way in which we regard a
media resource. None of them is logical deduction from the scenarios.
The way in which I look at those three sections is:

a) framework within which we work to define media fragments
b) use case scenarios in which we can imagine media fragment use and
why some of them are out of scope (namely: because of the framework we
have set ourselves) - the scenarios are there to explain use cases and
to order them into different types, trying to make sure we have
covered all aspects
c) four dimensions of fragmentation that we consider as a consequence
of the use cases

I think this flows more nicely. The "Requirements" are actually almost
a "Terminology" section which is why I think this section should go up
first.

Cheers,
Silvia.
