On June 4 the Web Annotations WG published a new WD of "Use Cases and  
Requirements for Ontology and API for Media Object 1.0":

[[
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-media-annot-reqs-20090604/>

Abstract

This document specifies use cases and requirements as an input for  
the development of the "Ontology for Media Object 1.0" and the "API  
for Media Object 1.0". The ontology will be a simple ontology to  
support cross-community data integration of information related to  
media objects on the Web. The API will provide read access and  
potentially write access to media objects, relying on the definitions  
from the ontology.

The main scope of this document are videos. Metadata for other media  
objects like audio or images will be taken into account if it is  
applicable for videos as well.
]]

Note WebApps has a related deliverable and our expectation is for our  
spec "to be replaced by the Media Object API in progress by the Media  
Annotations WG":

[[
<http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/charter/#deliverables>

Metadata Access and Extensible Information for Media (MAXIM)
     a generic API for accessing metadata embedded in or linked to  
media files
