What is exactly your question? What would be the implementations of the 
spec and the test cases that come with for the CR exit?

What we have discussed so far:
   - implementation of a smart UA, that can transform the fragment 
requested into some new http headers and do either the 2-ways or the 
4-ways handshake ... ideally in collaboration with the browser vendors.
   - implementation of a server, that can handle media fragment request, 
slide the media file on demand, and serve it to the client

Yves has his own server (jigsaw)
Jack though he could do something with Ambulant, the SMIL player.
Test cases will ensure that communication between UA and server will 
follow what is specified in the spec (re: 2-ways / 4-ways handshake in 
case of http implementation, etc.)

Does that answer to your question?
Best regards.
