Jeff:
As I understand your requirements, both of these needs are covered by using
the begin/end facilities and the wallclock argument value type. You can put
begin/end conditions using absolute dates and times on the document <body>
element. This way, the document will only show content if the date/time is
within the specified begin/end. Otherwise it will end immediately, and not
show anything.

Subject: SMIL 2.0 Scheduling Features


 
Hello,
 
We have 2 scheduling needs that do not appear to be covered in SMIL 2.0
 
Can anyone explain how to accomplish these requirements within the SMIL 2.0
specification? 
 
1) Our Scheduling Module creates many different SMIL schedule documents for
our "Player"
    that are active throughout a month. Due to a high volume and complex
business requirements, 
    it is not feasible to combine all of the different SMIL schedules
created for a month into one SMIL 
    schedule. 
 
    How can we indicate the active date range and timeframe of each SMIL
document?
 
    For example, SMIL schedule document #1 is active from 11/1 - 11/30, with
a daily active timeframe 
    of 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM. Schedule #2 is active from 11/1 - 11/15, with a
daily active timeframe of
    5:00 PM - 10:00 PM. Schedule #3 is active from 11/5 - 11/5, with a daily
active timeframe of  
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.     
 
2)  Our Scheduling Module needs the ability to schedule a sequence of media
elements and indicate
     the active timeframe of each element. Is this possible in SMIL? 
 
     For example, in the element sequence below, we need the ability to
indicate that sm5v.jpg should only
     be played during 11/5 - 11/6.
 
      <img id="Logo" region="Image-1" src="Assets/euro/euro52x51.gif"
dur="5s"/>
      <img id="Five" region="Image-1" src="Assets/euro/sm5v.jpg" dur="10s"/>
      <img id="Ten" region="Image-3" src="Assets/euro/sm10v.jpg" dur="10s"/>
      
 
Thanks.
