Hi All,

	Sorry I couldn't attend the call - the telconfs clash with getting
kids ready in the morning.

	Anyway, reading the minutes and the discussion regarding the tests
and use of animation, etc. I have as suggestion to consider.

	Firstly, renaming the tests etc. is a lot of work and I agree with
Erik on that point. The group over the years has spent an inordinate amount
of time on the existing tests, and a radical change now is likely to overload
everyone on the group for little benefit.

	However the spec. does have descriptive text regarding "conforming
static viewers" and "conforming dynamic viewers", etc.

	So my suggestion is to split the test suite into 2 sets: set 1 is
all the tests that a conforming static viewer should handle; set 2 is the
set that includes SMIL animation. That way the implementation report will
have a clear demarcation between the 2 types of viewers and that avoids
having to rename everything 'animate-elem...' etc.

Just a thought,
Alex
