Loretta,
despite being an outspoken critic of the previous version of WCAG 2.0, I
think that the Working Group - along with the people who provided comments
over the past year - have done one hell of a good job with WCAG 2.0. To my
mind, this is now the best set of accessibility standards out there, far
surpassing WCAG 1.0, and I will be saying so very publicly shortly as I'm in
the process of polishing an article for accessites.org on the latest version
of WCAG 2.0.

Please pass on my thanks to everyone who has been involved. While I would
still have liked validity to be included, I feel that at least one of the
reasons given (because I didn't agree with all of them!) was sufficient to
warrant leaving it out, and as the Working Group have shown a willingness to
be persuaded by other arguments, it's only reasonable that I too show the
same willingness!

I would however specifically like to see some more work focussed on
cognitive disability to be included in the document before the final
release. I appreciate this will cause some difficulties, given the desire
for everything to be "testable" but think that it must be included in WCAG
2.0 somehow because if it is not then it will tend to be ignored by public
and legislative bodies.

If I can think of any specific comments relating to cognitive disability -
or indeed anything else, I will add my comments to the public list, although
I must confess to a certain reluctance to doing so while the email addresses
are publicly available as my initial comments led to me getting spam emails
for the very first time.

thanks
Jack Pickard
