Hello Clarke and Kas,

Noticed that the deadline for the session ideas is tomorrow. We have discussed that we should raise this question from the Task Force and in order to put a place holder I was planning to add this text to the session idea proposals. I am unclear if it should be a breakout session or plenary session. I welcome other TF members to co-sign.



Title: Merging video element from HTML5 and SVG

Proposer/Leader: Jan Lindquist (but willing to differ)
Type of session: Discussion
There has been a lot of effort to develop HTML5 video element which has had many enhancments like timetracks, audio and media elements. SVG also has a video element much earlier than HTML5. With all the effort on HTML5 what is the future of SVG's video element? Shall it be left as is, shall it be merged with HTML5's video element or other direction? It is important to clarify the direction of SVG video element to avoid misalingment. As the title suggest the recommendation is that they are merged.

Note that this topic was raised from discussions in the Web and TV Interest Group - Media Piping Task Force. Most recently it was discussed in the webTV workshop held in Hollywood. Currently the requirement highlighting this issue is "Issue - 18" under Implementation issue # 6. In order to meet the deadline this topic was raised prior to the requirement being finalized in the task force.
