Hi,

WebApps does have a related deliverable in its charter:

[[
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
]]

However, as you can see from WebApps' publication status wiki, work  
on this spec is not active because of related work ongoing by the  
Media Annotations WG:

[[
http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/wiki/PubStatus#API_Specifications

Media Object (http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/MediaObject/publish/) -  
This spec is not active because it is expected to be replaced by the  
Media Object API in progress by the Media Annotations WG; see Media  
Object API Use Cases and Requirements (http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD- 
media-annot-reqs-20090604/)
]]

Soohong, Media Annotations WG - would you please provide a short  
update/status and plans regarding your Media API spec? Also, is this  
the most recent API document:

  http://dev.w3.org/2008/video/mediaann/mediaont-api-1.0/mediaont- 
api-1.0.html
