We argue that there is a basic conflict between the incorporation of time and the level of abstraction in formal specification. This conflict is illustrated through the specification of a simple multimedia stream. We propose the principle of separation of timing concerns as a resolution of this conflict and present a dual language notation in order to realise this principle. This notation uses LOTOS to express system behaviour and real-time temporal logic to express timing properties.
