Hello,

With SMIL 3.0 getting close to Recommendation status. 

Could the developers of SMIL 3.0 Language profile players borrow a page
from OpenDocument. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDocument

And add the ability to open zip files with SMIL content.

I can see SMIL 3.0 Language profile being successful on private networks
where the connections are fast.

On the Internet a lot of people still have dial-up and slower broadband
access. 

SMIL zips could make sure all will view the SMIL presentation as the
author intended.

And if zipping SMIL files is proven helpful, the next SMIL version can
make it part of the spec.


Good Luck and keep up the good work SMIL WG,
Jose Ramirez
