This is a wonderful simplification / easily readable description of XSPF.

Thanks for taking the time to provide the XMDP/microformat equivalent of
XSPF.  I think this will be very useful for discussions.

It might be interesting to add the XSPF field names to in a column in these
tables (which perhaps need to be harmonized into one "media metadata
comparison" table, rather than one specific for podcasts, and one specific
for video):



I know that Lucas, Lisa, Ernie, and Kevin Marks certainly have strong
interests in working on a common vocabulary to describe info about arbitrary
media (music, video, etc.) -- who else is interested in working on this?

I'd like to see if we can get some critical mass together to start writing
the necessary research documents:

 * media-info-examples
  - actual examples of media info published on the web today)
 * media-info-formats
  - harmonization/unification of the format listings, analyses and
comparison tables from media-metadata-examples and video-metadata-model)
 * media-info-brainstorming
  - an attempt at documenting the 80/20 of the implicit schema in actual use
on the web today, and some straw proposals for representation (e.g. Lucas'
hPlaylist proposal)

Who's in?
