Please point to the specification for this watch page. Thanks.

Not sure what you mean by specification. I think you're given an id in the process of posting the video.
http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/2.0/reference.html#Response_codes_uploading_videos
This id + url would be added to the mediapackage as a track, or I guess you could create an catalog with the returned info and give it a flavor youtube/episode. Perhaps this catalog would be leveraged in the future for youtube specific metadata as well.

How are we currently retracting published youtube videos currently? Do we search by title or do we persist the id somewhere? I imagine the latter would eventually be preferable. If we save this id in the xml catalog we can use if for this purpose in later iterations. Thoughts?

Ah, I see. I thought a "watchpage" was a new UI in Matterhorn. I'll look through the code, add notes here on the current implementation, and propose any changes that may be necessary to support retract.

As of r10933, tracks of the following form are added prior to publication in the search index:

<track ref="track:track-2" type="youtube/watchpage" id="track-3">
<tags>
<tag>youtube</tag>
</tags>
<url>

</track>
