<time> values only have second and millisecond unit identifiers. This will
make it inconvenient to represent time values in long duration media files because all
times must be converted to seconds. It may make more sense to use a time value
with a syntax like the SMIL
<clock-value> type, which allows units of hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds,
so longer times can be expressed without conversion.
- It would be useful to extend CSS Media
Queries with a new media query feature to make
rules that are matched based on bandwidth. This will allow a content author to build
pages that select different CSS files based on the user's bandwidth as well as existing
media query features like screen size.
