Thanks for the explanation, I will :-)

You ask exactly the same question that W3C has asked Manu Sporny :-) He 
is currently the liaison between these 2 groups. Basically, it seems 
that this consortium (industrially driven) is afraid to loose control 
over the standard, the license, etc. if this falls into W3C hands (which 
is non sense when we know the W3C patent policy). This consortium has 
yesterday and today a plenary face to face meeting. Manu will come back 
to us afterwards to see how we could collaborate. This consortium aims 
to have a huge impact in the industry. They might rely on W3C efforts 
(media annotations, media fragments) for ensuring the distribution of 
media content.
