ok. but just to clarify, did you mean you consider CMML as deprecated
for ogg, or in general deprecated as a markup language. i recently
started to use CMML as attachements in matroska containers ( because
the markup had a stable definition and matroska tag xml seems to get
nowhere , plus doesnt do timeline descriptions properly )

using CMML to describe a video timetime is currently the best thing i
found outthere, very easy to parse and verify.
