We will hold a meeting this week to discuss a few items as we approach the end of our CR phase.

1.       Short title. Dow we need to invent or modify the "brand" for Timed Text.
GF:  i agree with glenn that we shouldn't rename the spec (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tt/2009Sep/0021.html).  i also agree that we shouldn't spend much time on this.  however, if we're fishing for an official shorthand name to give to the public, i vote for DFXP.  it's unambiguous (unlike "timed text," which could be any timed-text format, such as QTText, RealText, SubRip or SAMI) and brief (unlike ttaf1-dfxp).

3.       File extension. (candidates include .dfxp, .ttxt)
GF:  i think .ttxt is similar to .txt and therefore might cause confusion.  i'm not unhappy with .xml, but i think .dfxp is the best possible extension because it immediately conveys what the file is.
