Indeed, it is rather enlightening. It shows how much work we still
have! And it may not just be this group actually.

One of the key areas that I tried to push recently[1] is a spec for
adaptive HTTP streaming for any file format, which is one of the
points made in the YouTube blog post (Robust video streaming). I am
still unclear about the answer to the question which is the right
forum to standardise such a scheme in. Maybe the simple answer is:
here and just do it. Then I'd be happy to push things forward on this
technology here and make proposals, even though they are protocol
related and not markup related. I just didn't want to spam this list
with technology proposals for which this is not the right forum.

Regards,
Silvia.
