Yes, very open to discussion on a future call.

The goal is to address some of the feedback on the main list that was along the lines of "the AT can/should be able to figure that out from the markup" and "what is supposed to be in a summary anyway?"  Orientation can't really be figured out from the markup right now, and I agree that almost no one knows what should be in a summary.  There are a lot of different things put in there now, including some things that probably could come from markup, and some things that don't really fit with a layman's definition of the word "summary".

I don't know if I am sold on the need for the orientation mechanism (orientation="rows|cols" to orientation="horizontal|vertical"). Maybe this is something that we could discuss on a future call?

Cheers
