To follow up on Werner email about Last week  publication of the major 
search engines Google, Microsoft and Yahoo on the schema.org [1] web 
site an initiative for vocabularies that include sets of properties for 
image, audio and video content.

There may be quite some overlaps in the domains of the media schemas 
they define there and our Ontology for Media Resources 1.0 [2].

Yesterday during the MAWG telecon we have discuss if we should add a 
mapping of this media schemas in our Ontology spec as it seems difficult 
to ignore it, regarding the major players involved.

We could:

1- Add a mapping in our Ontology (but as these are nomative, this will 
mean going back to a 3rd Last Call) and delay our spec which is now 
ready for CR publication.

2- add a mapping in a future Working Note.

3- add a mapping in a future version of Ontology for Media Resources.
Our spec says"The following mappings are established from the Media 
Ontology's properties to various multimedia metadata formats. This list 
of formats is not closed, nor does it pretend to be exhaustive. A future 
version of this specification may include additional mappings if a need 
or use case is established for these new mappings."

4- have these guys align their schemas to our Media Ontology (let's 
dream a second ;-)

Currently I have no idea how mature/stable is this media schemas (still 
a draft or more advanced ?).

After a discussion yesterday with Philippe Le Hegaret during the 
Interactiuon meeting, I was advised that we should not at this point 
include a mapping for this schema in our Spec and follow our publication 
track to CR and beyond. We could adopt point 2 or 3 latter.

This initiative will impact many WGs like RDFa, microformats, HTML, etc...
Therefore W3C will deal with this issue.
