Thank you very much, Janina.

This means that we do not need to use fast check list for publishing working 
group, and we will go to the next stage of accessibility review of APA.
Just for clarification, is there something specific that we (publishing 
working group) need to do, or is it now completely over to APA group to 
perform horizontal review?

Thank you

Hi, Avneesh:

Thank you for your request, and sorry you had difficulty getting it to
me. And, yes, clarifying our process in APA is on my todo list for our
home page.

Meanwhile, the easiest and most reliable way to make such a request is
via email to the public APA email list, public-apa@w3.org. I've cc'd the
list with this response.

Your understanding is essentially correct. We do want people to follow
the FAST survey instrument, but that desire has not yet been actualized,
so there's no xample we have on hand to show you. In any case that
instrument is aimed at identifying fundamental accessibility issues
unlikely to show up when groups like yours, with its long and deep
experience building accessible technology, create a new specification.
So, by way of example, were we to find you left out a graphic description, 
I'm sure it would be
only an oversight, not a lack of knowledge!

APA's approach in this instance would be more to look for any potential
clashes among various W3C groups specifications work, things like that.
We'll do our best.

Thank you for reaching out to us.
