We had a fairly confused and confusing, unsuccessful 
transition call last week for AssocSS.  

The minutes are team-confidential, but Liam's summary is:

 The XML Core WG needs to draft a note, non-normative text,
 to be added to the definition of media, explaining that
 in the absence of a media attribute, the behaviour is
 implementation-dependent, and warning people about
 interoperability issues in that case.

I'm not sure where to go from here on this, but my best 
suggestion is to draft a Note to add to the discussion 
of the media pseudo-attribute that points out that the 
meaning of an omitted media attribute is--like everything 
else with the meaning of all pseudo-attributes, as we've 
already said in the Note currently in section 2--application 
(not implementation) dependent, and I'm not sure I agree 
this implies interoperability issues beyond anything else
in this spec, so I don't feel we need a separate explicit
warning about that here.

I do not quite understand the next steps--perhaps Liam
can elaborate.

I think we suggest wording for an additional note, and
then I think we're supposed to ask Daniel G for his
acceptance (I don't see why he would give it after his
previous comments, but who know), and then I guess we
let Liam discuss it with TimBL and the rest of W3M and
figure out what happens next.

At this point, I feel I should be suggesting wording so
that we can make some progress in email, but I'm just in
no mood to do so--I'm hoping perhaps someone else will.
If not, perhaps I'll give it an attempt later this week.
