Thanks for this announcement, gotta dig deeper into it ;)

One tiny question for the start (maybe not so relevant for POWDER itself,
but for QA-W3C purposes):

Looking at your Test Cases I gather you use [1] as the base voc for testing
whereas we over at RDFa use [2]. Wondering if the QA group of W3C would
finally be kind enough to provide binding guidelines for *all* WG in order
to create an interoperable set of TC throughout all specs.

As an aside: I'll likely be responsible for the Media Fragments WG TC [3]
and want to prepare properly (based on my experiences with the RDFa TC and
what else I see in the W3C realm)
