Hi all,

There hasn't been any new feedback on this particular discussion for a
long time. I agree with Michael and Maciej and see no need to delay
this proposal any further, since the recommended changes related to
the consensus check at
http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/44061/multitrack-api/results have been
discussed on the list and changes undertaken.

In view of the 5th April deadline by the HTML WG on making progress on
Issue 9 (http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/9), I will post this
proposal to the HTML WG on Monday.

I suggest if anyone has more issues to contribute on this proposal
(the Media Multitrack API proposal), please contribute to the
discussion that will be started in the HTML WG.

PLEASE NOTE that I am deliberately NOT moving the "Media Text
Associations" proposal forward to the HTML WG, but only the "Media
Multitrack API" which seems a lot less controversial. Since Sean Hayes
recent joining of the TF and his recent contribution to that proposal,
there are another few changes to make to the "Media Text Associations"
proposal, which I hope we can get done through and after the F2F.
Also, it seems Dick Bulterman is preparing a proposal that may
influence the "Media Text Associations" proposal, so I suggest we wait
until the F2F on these.
