Hi Jack,

I am concerned about this position. I shared it when we started the
group and I never thought spatial fragments would become relevant in
the near future. However, now it has happened and the CSS WG wants to
pick it up. Therefore, we cannot leave this issue undefined. We can
state that we need help by the CSS WG and the SVG WG to resolve this
and maybe we need a F2F meeting or phone conference with them or
something to discuss this through. But I don't believe putting our
heads in the sand is going to help - it will just result in the CSS WG
having to define it themselves.

Cheers,
Silvia.

Probably to be defined for MF 2.0 or something.

I think that this is clearly such a case: doing the right thing here is not something I think we can do with e few mail messages....
