There is interest, but it might not be at the top of everyone's priority list. There are indeed technical issues, but those tend to fan the flame of enthusiasm rather than smother it.

Note that the above specification is hardly any progress: it is essentially a copy of the WARP specification with very minor modification.

Given that you work for the BBC, that the BBC is a W3C member, and that you seem knowledgeable on the topic is there any chance that you could join in to help with this? It would be most helpful.
