Hi All,

I've proposed a new W3C Accessibility Playlist Community Group to explore
strategies for bridging the gap between accessibility needs and current
common playlist formats such as XSPF and Media RSS.

In order to distribute accessible media using HTML5 media and track
elements, there are potentially many resources affiliated with each title:
A media source file (potentially in multiple formats), caption file,
multiple subtitle files, description files, chapter files, metadata files,
and source files for  accompanying sign language videos in various sign
languages. We need a playlist format that allows all of these resources to
be identified.

If you're interested in getting involved in such a group, please vote your
support here:
