Hello,

I would like to have some help in the correct 
interpretation of the animation of 'xlink:href' 
for the elements audio and video.
I think, this is only a minor issue just for 
understanding, how to use it.
The attribute 'xlink:href' is specified to be 
animatable.
Well.
The attribute 'type' is not.

What is expected from authors:
1. Not to use different types in the animation?
2. If different types are used, not to give a 
    hint with the type attribute for any of them?
3. To give a list of the used types as a value 
    of the type attribute? If - how? Comma or 
    space separated?
   
I think it is not specified in SMIL or did anyone 
find it somewhere? Isn't it a task for SVG, because 
it specifies, that type is not animatable? Maybe 
this is only constrained for the tiny profile to 
get it easier to implement?
