Hi, Björn-

Just to clarify, you're not asking us to change our use of
"synchronization", but only the various spellings of "run-time", correct?  I
will happily do this (I just did the same thing for "white space",
"white-space", and "whitespace" ).  Is there a preferred term? I am inclined
to go with "run time".

Can you cite your rationale for preferring this variant? SMIL uses many
variations, but the place we reference [1] says, "If the Eventbase-element
term is missing, the event-base element is defined to be the target element
of the animation."

I can see it either way, and would be willing to change it if you can find
documentation by the SYMM WG supporting your claim.

Great. Looking forward to your further clarification so I can effect these
changes quickly.
