Thanks, Tzviya. This most timely review is much appreciated.

I would like to add it to APA's Wednesday agenda. I believe we may well
choose to forward your findings as APA comments. They're very similar to
comments we've made on other specs, e.g. the part about providing
descriptions and the part about adding accessibility to statements about
security and privacy.

It might be worth adding a short note about ensuring accessibility of the tools that process this data.
