Thanks Dan.
  Quite acceptable.
  Further use case, if needed, for version n+1.

  Our end product uses SSML.
  Hence when I feed n sentances (derived from para markup)
  to a synth, I would like to know the offset, in seconds
  to the start of each sentance, such that I can synchronise
  the para level markup with the audio.

regards DaveP



    As you request, we will consider this use case for the 
    requirements for the next version of SSML.

    If you deem it to be out of scope of SSML then fine.
    I'm less convinced that SSML provides the triggers to 
    enable this functionality.
    
    I take this as a use case that you are rejecting.
    OK.
    
    I would request that this use case be considered for the 
    requirements for the next issue.
    
    Regards DaveP
