position papers should stay focused on the Workshop goal: identify and
prioritize requirements for extensions and additions to SSML that will
improve the use of SSML for rendering non-English languages including
(but not limited to) Arabic, Hebrew and the Indian languages Telugu,
Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarthi and Urdu.
Descriptions of new requirements with usage scenarios and clear
explanations of the problems to be solved is of top priority for the
Workshop, while examples of SSML syntax extensions is secondary
