<raphael> Raphael: summarizing the long thread and discussion about extensibility

<raphael> ... and summarizing the position of philip

<raphael> Jack: the only thing we should say is: if we partially understand a media fragment, should we accept or ignore ?

<raphael> ... this is one line in the spec

<raphael> ... we should accept what is acceptable

<raphael> ... and in particular if a media fragment URI can have things we don't understand

<raphael> ... and personally I don't care about the grammar

<raphael> Yves: we should be very caution with extension

Yves: we should be careful with extensions

<raphael> ... e.g. the ref redefines an existing dimension

Jack: explains we could use an attribute to control strict or loose parsing

All: think this is ugly

<Yves> :)

Jack: suggestion: we mandate the chair to decide something

<raphael> Jack: I have no strong feeling either way

Jack: I do think (and so does Davy) that if we recognize the attribute name then the value must adhere to our syntax

<raphael> #t=banana ... means parsing stops

<davy> #t=10&t=20 ... means parsing stops?

<Yves> well if you always ignore what you don't understand #t=banana&xywh=10,10,20,20 should be xywh=10,10,20,20

<davy> I disagree

That woulnd mean that t=1o&xywh=1,2,3,4 would parse

<Yves> this is what is consistent with 'ignoring what you don't understand'

<Yves> we have t=npt:120, what happens if we have t=<mytimeunit>:120 ?

<Yves> we can have extensionaxis = extensionname = extensionvalue

<raphael> Jack: we should not try to encode in a grammar what we will not understand

<Yves> but jack, encoding extension points is a good thing to do

Yves: either we do nothing about extension or do it correct, with extensionaxis in the grammar
... we could check what existing implementations do

Raphael: they are waiting for us to specify correct behaviour
... time to adjourn

<raphael> Jack: I suggest the chairs put a deadline and take a decision on this issue

<raphael> Raphael: I agree, I will have a discussion with Erik
