Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for all of your hard work on this. Terrific start.

Just one substantive comment on the draft: I concur with Kelly's
suggestion [1] to change "must" to "should". For the majority of
sighted users, a summary text is not needed, but some people may want
to access the summary information so that shouldn't be prohibited.

Your doc [2] should work for the details section of a Change Proposal well.

To fit the Change Proposal Template format [3], which Maciej recently
approved [4], we will need to write Summary, Rationale, and Impact
information for this proposal. Most of that can be collected from the
main "Mechanism to Summarize a Table" Wiki page [5] which Gregory
initially set up and Josh and I expanded over the past two and a half
years for numerous Tracker actions.

A few spelling errors:

has cna have

Thanks again for all your work, Cynthia. It is very much appreciated.

Best regards,
