The current module I have implemented works closely with
RenderingEngine/GraphicsContext and HTML5 video player, which
tries to deliver some special interactive Apps (In Cable World) as an
overlay over HTML5 Video,
the apps themselves are delivered as one of the private streams in the
Video, so some work has gone inside implementation
of video player itself.

In near future, I will be poking around a lot  with HTML5 player. I
will be implementing lot more modules like above,
which will be linked to WebCore. Each of the new enhancements I
provide needs to be use WebCore and should be
accessible to HTML page author. So I will be drilling some holes to
expose these modules as a finite set of JavaScript objects.
