Although one question here. 

Are they expecting userspace support ie, MSC streams support ? Currently 
under Linux we don't have any userspace support for MSC streams data 
service, but just MPEG2 Transport Stream alone.

ie currently we don't have any apps yet, that we can test the streams, 
except for checking the MPEG2 Transport Stream.

Or do they require more than a driver delivering a MPEG2 TS as per the 
Linux DVB definition ?
