       I’m happy to agree to EA Draffan’s retention of “practice”, as I do think it important, but can live with David’s simplification.   The important point is that continuing research will help us inform the multi-faceted discussion needed to address cognitive accessibility and serve real user needs.

   I am wondering if it is necessary to lose the  bit about practise as it is not just about the technologies…. 
  
 What about …
 "Work will carry on in this area as research continues to inform practice and technologies mature in the marketplace. "

   I'm fine with the friendly amendment...
 
   
 
  The research sentence parses a little awkward with two "continues", perhaps this will fix it...

    I like David’s text but wanted to make two small alterations. One changes the text at “all languages and countries” and the other alludes to the importance of research to inform practice related to supporting cognitive disabilities and learning prior to “technologies mature”.  The revised text is below:

    I would add something about internationalization in the rational for COGA as in my proposal... there are 3 main factors preventing the inclusion of many COGA requirements in WCAG
 
   
 
   Testability
Implementation across all web pages
Internationalization, language issues where COGA help in one language can't transfer to another.

  This version (https://rawgit.com/w3c/wcag21/intro-dits-coga/guidelines/) includes:

Moved the “User Support” section to be higher in the introduction.  https://rawgit.com/w3c/wcag21/intro-dits-coga/guidelines/#user-support-in-wcag-2-1
Reworked the second paragraph to incorporate more of Lisa’s text but link to a general WCAG resources page.

 Here's my suggestion riffing off of Charles amendment to the earlier text that several of us worked up.
  
 Although these guidelines cover many important issues, they cannot address the needs of every individual and every type, degree, and combination of disabilities.  Significant challenges remain in addressingcognitive, language and learning disabilities while ensuring that success criteria are consistently testable and implementable across all web pages in many countries and languages.

 Lisa,
 Can you share what paragraphs you intend for these paragraphs to replace or add to?
  
 If this is in the abstract, I’m concerned that we need to make sure that the topic is appropriately covered in the main body of the document. That is where the message needs to exist in its complete form as the abstract is a hyper-condensed version of the whole.

 Hi Lisa,
  
 I’ve taken a crack at re-wording the last paragraph.  I don’t wish to draw anything out, and I do not object to your wording (I formally agree with your wording).  But if time permits for suggestions and alternatives:
  
 Although these guidelines cover many important issues, they cannot address the needs of every individual and every type, degree, and combination of disabilities.  Significant challenges remain in addressing internationalization, cognitive, language and learning disabilities while ensuring that success criteria are consistently testable and implementable across all web pages.  Work will continue in this area as technologies mature in the marketplace.  We encourage authors to refer to our supplemental guidance on improving the user experience for people with learning and cognitive disabilities at: w3.org/XXX
  
 Thanks,
 Charles Adams

 Subject: wording for the introduction
  
 I think this was the wording based on what was close to consensus from the back discussions
  
 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 covers a wide range of implementation recommendations serving a diverse range of people with disabilities. Following these guidelines will make Web content more accessible and results in improved access to an increasingly larger group of people using the web independently.
  
 Disabilities include impairments related to blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, limited movement, photosensitivity, cognitive, language and learning disabilities, and combinations of these. The guidelines also makes Web content more usable for ageing related impairment, short or long-term changing abilities, usage in different circumstances and devices, and often improve usability in general. 
  
 Although these guidelines cover many important issues, they do not claim to address the needs of people with all types, degrees, and combinations of disabilities. Particularly, in the areas of cognitive, language and learning disabilities, trying to address issues of consistent  test-ability, implement-ability across all web pages, and internationalisation continue to present a major challenge. Work will continue in this area as technologies mature in the marketplace. We encourage authors to consider our supplemental guidance on improving the user experience for people with learning and cognitive disabilities at: w3.org/XXX
  
  
 Note that there were issues with this wording but I think this got the most close to agreement  (I made some changes added the italicized terms)
  
  
  
 All the best
