A window could be considered as a region, with an id and a type to
specify that _it_is_ a window.

Perhaps we could consider something as:

<smil>
 <head>
  <layout>
   <root-layout width="200" height="200" />

   <!-- coords are relative to the top left corner of the presentation -->
   <region id="aRealRegion" left="10" top="10" width="100" height="100" />

   <!-- coords are relative to the top left corner of the screen -->
   <region type="window" id="aWindow" left="10" top="10" width="100"
height="100" />

  </layout>
 </head>
 <body>
  <par>
   <video src="foo1.mov" region="aRealRegion" dur="10s" />
   <video src="foo1.html" region="aWindow" dur="10s" />
  </par>
 </body>
</smil>

Thus, time model would remain the same but it is just a suggestion... ;-)

We should also add some capabilities to make regions move over
the presentation. But I think Philipp Hoschka (ph@w3.org) received a lot
of wishes for next SMIL versions. Philipp, could you give us a sum-up of
the main ideas ?
