Re: [tt] Updated draft input to the proposed revision of Timed Text WG charter

Actually, despite the title of the email, I was thinking of this statement more as a draft of requirements from the IG (which is the normal function of the IG), than as a Charter review (an AC function).

I agree that a simple statement that the IG supports the TTML WG draft Charter would make sense in addition, though if more of our requirements were incorporated into the Charter, all the better.

Perhaps Pierre or the IG chairs should post an email on the TTML Charter review discussion thread endorsing the new Charter on behalf of the IG and providing a link to this page?
