> Hello www-smil,
> While reading
> Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL 3.0)
> W3C Working Draft 13 July 2007
> I noticed several instances of the word 'must' in informative sections.
> This is problematic, due to the common usage of 'must' as a conformance
> requirement in W3C specifications.
> Please either 
> a) reword these sections to avoid 'must', or 
> b) add clarificatory wording regarding use of 'must' in the
> specification as a whole and noting any relationship to RFC 2119, or
> c) consider making some of the informative sections normative, if
> 'must' is indeed used as a conformance requirement in some cases

Working Group Resolution (LC-1814):
The group has identified a large number of required modifications related
to your comments.
Each of the proposed changes has to be reviewed by the human to ensure the
quality of the specification.
Therefore the group targets the following schedule:
-	the Working Group will prepare corresponding changes on the best-effort
basis within the CR time frame and 
-	the Working Group will modify the specification until its final version
is published.
