Hi,

I am not opposed to the definition of a TV profile, but before starting
the discussions, I also think we need to agree on the objectives.
>From a service provider point of view, the main driver of a W3C TV
profile has to be interoperability accross a wide range of devices, and
not compatibility with devices typically used in a specific ecosystem
(that is in my opinion up to dedicated business fora to define these).
Said differently, I am very interested in defining a W3C profile for TV
services, ie identifying what would prevent a service provider from
deploying the same TV web application on TVs, tablets, mobile phones and
desktops, but I am not really interested in defining a W3C profile for
TV devices, ie deciding on which subset of the specifications an
implementation on a specific range of TV devices can be tagged as HTML5
compliant (because this kind of profile increases fragmentation instead
of reducing it).
