Hi Marc (and all),

you seem to have come a good leap forward in Cannes, 
congratulations! All reads good although I have a comment on the 
roles/links part (comes in a separate email).

I could / would like to take care of:

5.1.2 - writing an example for automatic recognition of emotions.

This would include some multimodality stuff, not sure if I go for 
traces, though.

I could also contribute to 2.3.2 - The modality element
if Enrico can't do it.

Obviously I'll also read the whole document and comment.
I should be able to attend both phone meetings.
