Hi Glenn,

Did you spot in SMIL3 ยง5.4.5 [1] at the end it describes the behaviour of 0 duration elements? This suggests to me an inconsistency in SMIL3 that may not have been intended.

In your wording for this issue [2] you use the word 'willful' which in my understanding has negative connotations, that don't apply here! It would be better to replace "willful violation of" with "deliberate divergence from" to avoid this. In recognising that we are deliberately diverging from SMIL we should also explain why we are doing so, in a Note.
