The HTML5 spec itself references CSS and other W3C specs, so using the term "HTML5" doesn't exclude other W3C specs. The reason I suggested the title
	"HTML5 Video Services Profile"
is because it underlines that HTML5 is the central spec. Are others looking for a spec that doesn't center on HTML5? If so, that's a more important issue than the title.

The even more important issue in the title is changing "TV" to "video services". Using "TV Profile" strongly implies it's a profile only for TV devices. "Video Service Profile" or "Profile for Video Services" makes clear the profile describes what is needed for video services on any device.

Thanks,
mav

The name of the profile is not as critical as knowing the breadth of the areas it should cover. This profile may live for a while and it in the context of the industry attempt to influence the work in W3C with a clear list of specs that are being used and how they may be used. It will become a reference point by other standard groups. By using the same name as the IG it can help see the relationship.
