As David points out, the feature identifier for Timesheets was
http://www.w3.org/2007/07/SMIL30/Timesheets but that is no longer mentioned
in either the SMIL 3.0 nor the Timesheet spec (unless I have missed it).
Personally I think it should be added back to the SMIL30 spec [1] and a
section should be added to the Timesheet spec for clarity (with an example
using the DOM hasFeature method).

What makes this a little confusing is that SMIL Timesheets 1.0 still uses
the SMIL 3.0 namespace.  So it's part of the SMIL 3.0 namespace, but as a
standalone feature it should have its own unique feature identifier.

Regards,
Jeff
