Hi all,

the comment of Rodolphe give me the opportunity of arising a question
I'm thinking about since long time now:

Why we have a type "video" and not a type  "multimedia"?

if we have only video then we should allow a max number of occurrences
larger than 1 as we can have a video with sound (movie), or sound with
a video composed by only an image or just a text or video without
sound (if we just select VIDEO).

Inserting a multimedia type will solve this problem as "multimedia" is
by definition composed by multiple media (a movie is composed by video
+ sound )

Best regards,
