I will be there with Giuseppe, we are both web TV IG chairs. We know this
specific topic very well.
I'll represent TV industry, and Giuseppe will do for browser industry.
Aren't you G?
As TV industry has already been provided seemingly same solutions and
started business out of them, the most important point for this discussion
is quick convergence to have single solution to prevent further
If we lose the right timing, then the business inertia might nullify
standard activities, which we want not.
Just try to make a simple solution/profile to get a consolidated starting
point. Further enhancement can we discuss after this important milestone.

I won't be able to make Berlin in February. I think having you there
(and anyone else who can make it) would be awesome though!
