Subject: Media Fragments URI specification and HTML5: call for review

Hi Mike,

Following our coffee discussion yesterday, I point you to this bug entered 
in the HTML5 bug tracker:  
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10723 "support for media  
fragment URIs in relevant HTML5 elements".

This bug describes the particular problem of rendering spatial media  
fragment in a HTML browser. The Media Fragments WG has written this non  
normative paragraph [1]:

"For a spatial URI fragment, we foresee two distinct use cases:  
highlighting the spatial region in-context and cropping to the region. In 
the first case, the spatial region could be indicated by means of a  
bounding box or the background (i.e., all the pixels that are not  
contained within the region) could be blurred or darkened. In the second  
case, the region alone would be presented as a cropped area. How a  
document author specifies which use case is intended is outside the scope 
of this specification, we suggest implementors of the specification provide 
a means for this, for example through attributes or stylesheet elements."

We will start discussing with the CSS WG how this styling could be done  
but the Media Fragments WG also thinks that if a default behavior must be 
specified, it should happen in the HTML5 specification.

Furthermore, the Media Fragments WG has issued a Last Call WD a couple of 
month ago and would welcome comments from the HTML WG on its entire  
specification "Media Fragments URI 1.0" located at  
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-media-frags-20100408. If you plan to send  
comments, please let us know and do send your comments to  
<public-media-fragment@w3.org> with "LC Comment" in the subject.
Best regards.

  Erik & Rapha¸«³l
