Dear all
I'm actually planning a presentation of SMIL at Berne University
as for April 29th.
This will be within the context of new media paedagogics.
I will take into consideration any suggestion about the cultural
meaning of SMIL.
I propose to take the presentation as a opportunity to 
develop  a content based SMIL Implementation Test.

i think this is a great experiment, which reveals some surprising
compatibility issues in current SMIL implementations - looks like
in implementations in practice the "switch" doesn't do what it is 
intended to do for media types
