there are some great ideas here! CMML had a focus on solving the time
domain - not so much the spatial domain, although we always assumed
that that would come at some point. This is a good time to extend
As for your specification of the div tag - I thought it was a good
start. In fact, you could use html image maps
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/objects.html#h-13.6 for activating a
certain area, which covers rectangle, circle and polygon areas.
We have discussed such approaches in the past and even went as far as
discussing how to specify an area that would change over time. You
would need to specify an image map for a time instant and another one
for a different time instant and then just interpolate the area as
time moves between the two.
Feel free to continue specification through examples - I think that's
the best way forward.
