T.E.O.'s Draft--Cascading Speech Style Sheets

I find the proposal from Europe overly simple and catering to only
low-level speech devices.

I firmly believe that the additional flexibility permitted in my
original draft is necessary to allow authors and implementers full
flexibility. The parameters defined in my original spec aare all
mappable to the definitions from Europe, the converse is not true.

Also, the European spec completely ignores the issue of sound cues and
auditory cions.

Finally, arguments like "most synthesizers are mono" is no
justification to avoid enabling the stylesheet to specify stereo.
