A big +1! This is one of the main argument also from Jack for adopting 
the first solution proposed by Yves rather than the second one.

It seems that we don't have the need to mix units (the Media Fragments 
URI syntax does not allow it anyway). There was a unknown variable 
regarding the ability for the server to know the duration of the full 
media in all circumstances, which I think is a reasonable assumption 
(also for Davy) though Yves pointed out that it _might_ be a problem in 
the case of smpte.
