Bjoern,

The Voice Browser Working Group (VBWG) is now completing its resolution of issues raised during the review of the Candidate Recommendation version of VoiceXML 2.1 [1]. Our apologies that it has taken so long to respond.

Following the process described in [2] for advancement to Proposed Recommendation, this is the VBWG's formal response to the issue you raised, identified as '111-14':

As specified in 5.3.12 of the VoiceXML 2.0 specification, ECMAScript 262 is the required scripting language for VoiceXML; no requirements were specified on the media type(s) that must be accepted when fetching an external script. To maintain backwards compatibility with VoiceXML 2.0, VoiceXML 2.1 will not impose any new requirements in this vain.

Please indicate before 24 November 2005 whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's resolution, whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you wish to register an objection.

If you do not think you can respond before 24 November, please let me know. The Director will appreciate a response as to whether or not you agree with the resolution. However, if we do not hear from you at all by 24 November 2005, we will assume that you accept our resolutions.

Thank you,

Matt Oshry
Chief Editor, VoiceXML 2.1

Dear Voice Browser Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-voicexml21-20050613/ is unclear about which ECMAScript media types must be supported by VoiceXML 2.1 im- plementations that support external scripts delivered using a MIME- like protocol like HTTP. The only appropriate media type for such content is application/ecmascript; as this is a new media type and existing ECMAScript implementations do not interoperate well in this regard, other W3C Technical Reports require support for this type.
I think VoiceXML 2.1 should do the same and require support for the application/ecmascript media type as defined in

  http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-hoehrmann-script-types-03.txt

regards,
