As AOL LLC's Advisory Committee Representative, I submit the following 
response to the WG's responses to our original Last Call commentary [1] 
on WCAG 2.0.

We note that your response to our original comments [1] includes the 
following optimistic and encouraging "forward-looking" statement:

"It is acknowledged that at the present time there may be difficulty in 
creating captions for time sensitive material and this may result in the 
author being faced with the choice of delaying the information until 
captions are available, or publishing time-sensitive content that is 
inaccessible to the deaf, at least for the interval until captions are 
available. Over time, the tools for captioning as well as building the 
captioning into the delivery process can shorten or eliminate such delays."

This thus constitutes resolution of our LC commentary by a 
forward-looking optimistic statement, and not a change from Level 1 to 
Level 2 success criteria.  While AOL LLC also has every reason to be 
optimistic about the progress of future "tools for captioning", we are 
glad we noted our objection formally and thus take no further action at 
this time.
