Hi, everybody:

One of NCAM's partners (Netflix) is looking for a way to specify aspect ratio in a TTML file; however, TTML currently has no way of actually specifying aspect ratio.  I took a look through the WG archives and saw that this topic has been discussed recently (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tt/2012Oct/0061.html) but it doesn't look like there has been any resolution.  Is this feature under consideration?

(Netflix has raised the same issue with WebVTT, and it looks like that spec will be including metadata for specifying aspect ratio:  https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20566 .)

Thanks.
