Should I develop an SMIL editor?

I am new to SGML/SMIL, and I find myself wondering if an SMIL editor would
be a good choice of commercial products to target. Do I need a wake-up
call? I am imagining a specialized XML editor that includes temporal
attributes and a frame by frame like content view.

If the project is a go, then I would have moderate development funds to
work with.

I am aware there are key individuals on this list who are well established
in such technology, and who are already working on their own agendas. Could
we cooperate for mutual benefit?

I would be interested in knowing more about desired product features,
design issues, foreseeable risks, and whether anyone would be interested in
participating with development and to what extent.
