Hello Robert,

I think you got the wrong Vincent or you confuse me with Someone else :-).

See below what I responded to Niklas regarding his point on cartoons and 
educational animations: I am supportive of the idea and said that it was 
"an important thing for the working group to consider". So the Working 
Group as a whole is dismissing the idea. Some expressed disagreement 
(e.g., Jon and Thierry) and I expressed agreement, but that does not 
mean the whole group has formed an opinion as a group yet or that the 
group has dismissed the idea.
