To whom it may concern.
The recent language TTML tries to provide a format for text inside a
multimedia environment, especially for subtitles. This is however
already achieved by the SMILText profile of the SMIL specification. In
this context, the creation of TTML is likely to be redundant, this
will make it more complex for implementors since they will have to
support two formats, it will also be more work to maintain two
specifications. It may be wise to see which, if any, features of TTML
are missing from SMILText, implement them in the SMIL language, and
add them to the SMILText profile instead of having to maintain two
languages which provide similar features.
