Are any details about these concerns on the a11y Apis going to be posted

      Dominic from Google has expressed doubts and Ryosuke from Apple was

      In addition, someone from the A11Y team told me that they don't like
      the focus rings and want to redesign everything.

      Given this, I'd rather work on it separately so we're not in the same
      situation 4 months from now.

        It would be great to do that. This was an option I heard came up at
        TPAC and I wanted to hear more. The idea of a simple add on might
        take less time, but I'd rather see the full spec get through in a
        few months.

        What Ted said. There is nothing that says that shipping has to be a
        heavy process. We can ship iterations of Recommendations (or CRs,
        whatever) with just the sort of small delta you mention. Nothing
        wrong with having multiple releases a year if they work.
