For these items I reiterate my questions :

- Is the industry actually demanding this kind of open
standard ? (people who have read the Digidesign SDK
license agreement understand why I insist on "open"...)

- Have we on the list enough experts in this field ?

I strongly suggest to keep 2 and 3 only if answer is
positive for both questions. Otherwise we risk to design
an overcomplicated, useless or unusable standard - exactly
what we don't want.

I agree, it seems that today's handheld systems are globally
the same as yesterday's desktop computers. Excepted maybe
the current lack of FPU, however it will likely change in
the next few years.
