Not a bad approach Michael.

If it is taken up, then:

While always tempted by SM - I nominate Brian Gryth as he was handling 
the original SM TF.

I would like to put myself forward as a Chair candidate for the 
Accessibility TF. I'm on the WCAG working group and will be on a joint 
WAI-PF/WAI-WCAG TF in the new year, working on HTML 5. I have a good 
understanding of 508 in the US, and the various legislative requirements 
pertaining to accessibility for most countries as well. Working in web 
publishing and content delivery, I'm also keenly aware of accessibility 
issues as they relate to government, and was accepted to WCAG with this 
as my primary expertise.
