Hi All,

Attached you can find the summary of the media features, as specified in [1] and [2].

Within this mail I would like to raise/discuss two points:

a) architecturally inconsistent handling of media features and their related APIs/events per spec

b) propose new events

Ad a)

There seems to be architectural inconsistency regarding what is specified where.
The basic media features are listed in [1], additional "view-mode" media feature is specified in [2], and the APIs/events related to all of those media features are to be specified in [2].
I think we could fix it before it is too late.

My proposal is:

1. Let [2] specify only "view-mode" media feature.

2. Move the scripting interfaces from [2] to some new spec.

3. I could prepare the split.

Ad b)

As listed in the attached document the orientation and aspect-ratio media features do not depend on the device and may change dynamically. So I would like to propose the following:

1. Add OrientationChangeEvent

2. Add AspectRatioChangeEvent

If the split of the specification would be (widely) accepted, these additions would go to the new spec (titled e.g. "Media Queries: API & Events", as originally proposed).

Please let me know what you think.


Kind regards,
