This is great.
One thing that we will need to remember is that when it is finalized it will
probably be reworded like: If the production supports an agency's mission or
provides training for agency personnel and includes interactive elements
that are part of the content, compliance with 1194.21 a-z is required.
I would suspect that more and more agency training and promotional 'video'
will include interactive element.

Subject: Re: [teitac-video] Multimedia discussion - Proposed 24(f)
My apologies for re-sending this - my initial email contained a typo that
created confusion . . . After much discussion with a number of members on
this subcommittee, we are proposing a new section 24(f) with the following
language to address the concerns I have been raising on the conference calls
about multimedia elements in productions:
Essentially, at issue are productions that contain more than merely audio
and video elements - they may contain elements of user choice that require
either data entry or user selection of different clips or scenarios. As a
result, it is critical for end-users to have full access to all elements in
the production, not just the audio and the video elements. These
productions may be played strictly on DVD players, or used in connection
with a computer, or broadcast over the Internet. These productions are
particularly common in educational/instructional settings. In our
discussions, we determined that these productions should be treated as
software, and as such, we decided to clearly indicate that to "close the
loophole" and guide the developers back to the software section.
