I find "the readers' needs" a bit nebulous as it seems to encompass accessibility already, no? If it stands in for usability+accessibility, maybe call out both instead:

 

> to make the combination of traditional publishing and the Web complete in terms of accessibility, usability, portability, distribution, archiving, offline access, and reliable cross referencing

 

(If you don't like the above, a couple of minor nits: it's not an "or" list, and the list would be easier to read without "the" in front of "readers' needs".)

Can we add “accessibility" to that list, 

ie.
     provide the necessary technologies on the Open Web Platform to make the combination of traditional publishing and the Web complete in terms of the readers’ needs, portability, distribution, archiving, offline access, accessibility, or reliable cross referencing.

 

Thanks

I have added a mission statement to the charter (in a separate pull request); it is, essentially, the last paragraph of the (renewed) goal section. It says:

 

[[[

            <p class="mission">

                The <strong>mission</strong> of the <a href="https://www.w3.org/dpub/WG/">Publishing Working Group</a> is to provide the necessary technologies on the Open Web Platform to make the combination of traditional publishing and the Web complete in terms of the readers’ needs, portability, distribution, archiving, offline access, or reliable cross referencing.

                      All publications—with all their specificities and traditions—should become first-class entities on the Web.

            </p>
