I just wanted to suggest using "audio and video content" instead of
"multimedia content". What do most people call those things on You Tube?
videos. What do people rent at Netflix, Blockbuster, and Hollywood Video?
videos. People don't think of videos as video only with no audio content.
So if you used "audio and video content", I think you would capture all
the types of content covered under guideline 1.2 and avoid the issue that
multimedia is often confused with "Flash".
