This new project was discussed. It was suggested that the initial draft appeared more as a recommended practice than a standard. The status of the primary reference document - the Blu-ray disc specification itself - was discussed. It was understood that programmers able to implement this draft standard would normally have access to the reference document in order to provide Blu-ray disc mastering facilities in the first place. It was also pointed out that people without access to the reference document might find it hard to understand the text of the proposed AES document. Secretariat to format the draft in order to clarify such outstanding issues.
