Hi all,

Here my opinion on the HTML5 bugs:

> * BUG 10723: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10723
> Should the player stop at the end of a temporal fragment or not?
> NO according to Hixie, I'm not able to understand the rationale :-(
The browser SHOULD stop. Reopen.

>> * BUG 12426: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12426
>> Should the @loop loop over a media fragment or not?
>> NO according to Hixie since he hasn't see "compelling use cases" for this.
The browser SHOULD loop over media fragments. Use cases can be in a
dance movie clip studying dance moves, looping over the main chorus in
a music clip, looping over glitches in funny cut-outs from news
clips... A plethora of use cases, both serious and fun. Reopen.

>> * BUG 12425: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12425
>> Should the UI (and UX) playing a temporal media fragment be standardized?
>> NO according to Hixie, as soon as the processing is done in terms of the
>> API, it will be conforming even if the UI is not intelligible.
We should go for whatever the HTML5 spec(s) say about the UI of the
video and audio elements. Be as precise or vague as they are. Needs
checking, but my gut feeling is reopen.

>> * BUG 12427: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12427
>> Should the UI (and UX) playing a spatial media fragment be standardized?
>> NO according to Hixie, since it should be the MIME types that support
>> the media fragment syntax that should define this.
We can argue about this one. I'd say accept the resolution for now.
