> Summary of Issue: why "consumers"?
> Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
> In "Optional components of a conformance claim" section, it reads "This information should be provided in a form that consumers can use, preferably machine-readable metadata." Who is "consumers"? Does it mean "end users of the web site/web appication"? If so, why "consumers" instead of "users"?
> Proposed Change:
> Need explanation.
Response from the Working Group
Good catch. We should be consistent. We only user 'consumers' in the
one location in the document. We will change it to 'This information
should be provided to users in a usable form, preferably
machine-readable metadata' in the next draft.
