To follow up on your original message, Adobe does believe that it is worth extending the TT Working group to address some outstanding items.  In particular, given the FCC's recent report and order it seems wise to look at integrating the SMPTE extensions, clarifying the role of XSL FO, and looking into defining a TTML basic profile.

Subject: TTML after March

The charter of the TTML Working Group will expire at the end of March
2012 [1] (it was extended for one year in 2011). I'm curious about the thoughts from individuals here about what to do, if anything, beyond the end of March.

For example, SMPTE did some extensions to SMPTE-TT back in 2010. Should we look at those and fold them back in the specification?

Dynamic flow was removed from the specification due to lack of implementation experience. Should it be reconsidered?

Should we switch from XSL FO to CSS?

Should we do a profile of TTML as well and retaining features that are the most deployed?

Or should the group just declare victory and go home?

Thank you,
