Don't know if they leverage XHTML+SMIL they would have to support all of 
the features of the chosen modules or if the Timed-text WG could just 
pick the features out of the certain modules from XHTML+SMIL when 
creating a new language.

When I first read that news, I was excited then I thought for a second,
If the HTML WG recommends XHTML+SMIL and it only looks good Microsoft's 
IE, no more W3C web it'll be MSWeb. You don't want that to happen do you :)
