Ok, I had to put it all together to see. Below is Matt’s proposal in context.

Seeing it here and thinking about Bill K’s argument, I have to say that I like what Matt has proposed and agree with Bill’s point that we are just trying to fill in the gaps to make the combo “complete”. That doesn’t mean that parts of it aren’t already a lot of the way there.

[[[

Does it help to reverse it and make the first-class entity statement the initial what and the second sentence the how?

Nope, that’s not how I read it. We are going to provide the necessary technologies to ensure that this complete list is met. That doesn’t say that it isn’t already partially met. Otherwise it would be arguable that the entire list is unnecessary, because it is arguable that all of those aspects are addressed in some way or another already too.

But read what comes before that…
is to provide the necessary technologies on the Open Web Platform

Meaning that we are going to provide things that are missing.  To put accessibility and usability in that mission will be stating that they aren’t already there.

I disagree. We are talking about what makes “the combination of traditional publishing and the Web complete.” It isn’t complete without those.

I actually want to pose an alternate position.

We are talking here about ADDING things to web – such as portability, archiving, etc.   It already has accessibility and usability!   As such, they don’t belong in this sentence.

So I would strongly recommend returning to the original statement.

Subject: RE: Added a proposed mission statement to the charter

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.
