Yes, I also think this is the way to move forward. I have discussed this 
during the last Hypertext Coordination Group telecon [1]. One of the 
suggestion people made is to find "classes" of possible rendering that 
could be detailed. We could then say that e.g. visual agents could 
render it this way, while non visual agents could do it differently.

Chris Lilley wonders also if the media selection would trigger :selected 
in CSS. We definitively need to talk with the CSS WG to resolve together 
this point.

I think Jack's suggestion is also a very good one, i.e. make the 
parameters of the MF url available to scripting, as attributes on the 
HTMLMediaElement interface. This is most likely a request to make to the

Chairs hat on, let's put some ACTIONS :-) I suggest that:
   - Silvia?/Jack? complete the section 7.1, 
http://www.w3.org/TR/media-frags/#media-fragment-display, and in 
particular improve the description of what should happened in a web 
browser (or this class of UA);
   - Silvia drafts a paragraph that could fit in the HTML5 spec and 
initiate the discussion with this WG (you could mention as well the 
changes required in the HTMLMediaElement interface)
   - Raphael contact the CSS WG to investigate what could be done.

We will naturally have a discussion about all this tomorrow.
Best regards.
