Another proposal would be to broaden the scope of the WG to include ip AND
dvb activities e.g. Web and TV Services, which is indeed a very hot topic.
We are currently participating in the W3C "Web and TV" Interest Group and
there seem to be a lot of partners interested in this activity.

Since W3C activities are mostly application-oriented, I think that IETF
involvement, focusing mostly on the network part (e.g. delivery
architectures for mixed multimedia/DVB and HTTP content), would be greatly
appreciated.

If we decide to move this way, we would be keen to participate and
contribute.

But of course we need Gorry's decision and support from other partners also.
