This violates the spec; see The Definitive Guide
(http://www.docbook.org/tdg51/en/html/mediaobject.html): "The primary
purpose of the mediaobject is to provide a wrapper around a set of
alternative presentations of the same information."

Great, thanks!

This is important to me because I use speakernotes for material that I
do not show on the slides but develop on the board and/or in dialog with
students (which, I think, is well within the semantics of "speaker
notes").  "Anywhere" speakernotes allow me to place the content exactly
where it belongs.  I also produce booklet output from the slides for the
students that do include the speakernotes; thus, it is very important
that the content appear in the right place.
