Specification of Order and Reliability in SMIL Documents



This document proposes to integrate the SMIL language, a recent W3C standard for multimedia documents, into REMDOR, an architecture for multimedia communication being developed by the Protocol Engineering Lab group based on the important concepts of Partial-Order/Partial-Reliability at transport level. This paper refers some differences existent between SMIL and REMDOR temporal models and shows the limitations of the current SMIL specification in order to accomplish the transport layer concepts mentioned above.
