Agenda+ Open Issues: Ownership and Prioritisation, plus Is it a good topic for TPAC? We'll need to iterate through these at high speed to get through them in time, so please come with viewpoint ready – I suggest we use a prioritisation scheme such as P1-P4 where P1=Must be resolved in TTML2, P2=Should be resolved in TTML2, P3=Delegate to TTML(>2), P4=Remove from issue list altogether. If no views re suitability for TPAC are stated then as per previous actions pal and nigel will go through the higher priority issues and assign to the TPAC agenda according to how well the issue lends itself to discussion in a room as opposed to discussion by email/teleconference.
