Re: Media Fragments Working Group: Agenda 02 December, Telecon 1000 UTC

Dear all,

> have you been able to work on section 5? 

I consider I have finally completed my long time overdue action 112. See 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-media-fragment/2009Dec/0008.html
We need to discuss it now and take some resolutions. I personally still 
have some precise questions regarding both approaches to make sure they 
are complete. See the email I just sent.

Regarding the Section 5, I agree that it needs a complete re-structuring 
in order to be aligned with the section 3. I would like that in today's 
telecon we share this load of work. I would suggest the following structure:

   - Section 5.1: Media Fragment Resolution and Processing general setup
     . Actual content of 5.1 + 5.2
     . Michael, there is some long editorial note from you stating you 
will rework the text. Is this still of actuality?

   - Section 5.2: Resolving URI fragments with server help
     . Good case: HTTP request header + HTTP response header documentation
     . Fallback 1: non-media fragment conformant UA
     . Fallback 2: non-media fragment conformant server (old-fashioned)

   - Section 5.3: Resolving URI fragments in a proxy cachable manner
     . Good case: HTTP request header + HTTP response header 
documentation --> 2 round-trips fully detailed!
     . Fallback 1: non-media fragment conformant UA
     . Fallback 2: UA that does understand media fragment URI but not 
support newly introduced headers
     . Fallback 3: non-media fragment conformant server (old-fashioned)
     . Fallback 4: server that does understand range request in various 
units but not support newly introduced headers

   - Section 5.4: Resolving URI queries

What do you think?
Cheers.
