Hello everyone on the list, Hello Jose,

SMIL/Timesheets will likely remain a W3C note.
We as a group tried to get a dual-implementation path going so that we 
could move this to Rec before wrapping up this edition of the SYMM WG, 
but we wound up with only a collection of partial implementations.

Practically speaking, I expect that there will be a number of 
implementations of Timesheets in the coming year, although not all will 
cover the entire specification.

We have seen some interest from browser makers in providing richer 
timing support for media in implementations, but it is really not clear 
who this will pan out.

On special-purpose devices, like TVs, the exploitation path is clearer. 
We at CWI are working with the Brazilian NCL community on set-top box 
integration of our languages. We are also working with others on 
pop-corn implementations that consider synchronization specifically.

I hope that these efforts make themseleves to this list as they develop! 
Keep those cards and letters coming!

cheers,
-d.
