Thanks for the swift reply, Toby.

So essentially what you're saying is that the browsers should be able to handle 
these new types of URIs instead of new tags/attributes. This is one of the discussions I have had with my collegues. I guess I have to take this issue also to 
the URI mailing list before it is too late. I tend to believe that leaving this kind of stuff open results in a mess, when browser writers recreate their own versions 
before a standard is laid out.

Yes. This might be a good alternative. What do you think, what would be the best way 
to manage different fields (mediatype, author, title etc.) in the queries?

There is already an RFC for referring to TV channels, although I'm not sure if 
programmes can be referred to. 

Ok. I will look into that. I know for a fact that TVAF is working on locating certain 
episodes of programmes and they will certainly bring these issues forward sooner or

Do you think it is best to implement filesharing and television viewing inside a 
browser (in a plugin?) window or should a new window be opened for an existing viewer
