Message-ID: <op.t0suegvdzqgw0t@0104xpd.e-fti.com>

I think these are the main points that we discussed. Many of them are not  
recorded in the minutes. They haven't been incorporated into the document  
yet although there is an updated version online [1].

* Include the term "business case" as that is largely what the document is  
about, not just technical feasibility.
* Use case or purpose to "Spread awareness" between one group and the  
other.
* In Scope section: Put positive elements before the negative.
* Section on how people with disabilities use mobiles, and explain (to  
non-accessibility people) that they do a lot (Sylvie).
* Include a summary in a list or one paragraph, to sell the document. At  
the beginning.
* Explain why based it's on WCAG 1.0.
* Use case of advocacy group arguing for adoption of WCAG for mobile-aware  
site, to justify no undue effort is involved.
* Include a high level overview or slides for talks.
* Try breaking up the document so you only get the version or overlaps  
you're interested in. For example depending on your starting point WCAG or  
MWBP. rather trying to have it all in the one document.
* Include policy makers and guideline writers explicitly in use cases
