Hi Nigel,

Thanks a lot for forwarding this. This activity is indeed very 
interesting. It seems to be an alternative to iframes. I am not sure if 
this would influence somehow the HTMLCue proposal though. I "cc" Simon 
Pieters who explained at the last TPAC meeting the security concerns of 
Web Standard Developers with an HTML Cue.

For TPAC I suggest that we may prepare more details of this two options:

1) One that investigates how the current cue concept could be used 
already to solve our use case (possibly with few further properties).

2) Another that investigates to have a HTMLCue as specialisation of the 
general cue.

My task was to investigate option 1) and I will report on this at TPAC. 
As discussed in the latest meeting we may check if we should have joint 
meeting with the Web Platform Group about this topic and we may also 
bring this up in the Web & TV interest group.

Best regards,
