Details are as follows.


1. WONTFIX BUGS:

1.1 Bug 10066: "replace section 3.2.6 with the alternative spec text
provided (ARIA)" reported by Steve Faulkner.
Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Ian's Rationale: "there is no problem here"
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_activity.cgi?id=10066

1.2 Bug 10642: "No alternative text description for video key frame
(poster)" reported by Everett Zufelt.
Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Ian's Rationale: "The request here is just cargo-cult accessibility
and would not actually improve the life of any users, while costing
authors in wasted time and effort."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10642

1.3 Bug 10661: "use an ISO 639-2 specified language for HTML5
documents" reported by Gregory J. Rosmaita.

1.4 Bug 10723: "Support for media fragment URIs in relevant HTML5
elements" reported by Silvia Pfeiffer.
Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: "I'm closing this on the basis that it's out of scope for
the HTML spec and should be handled by the URI and video format
specs."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10723

1.5 Bug 10903: "Provide an introduction to wai-aria in the wai aria
section of the spec" reported by Steve Faulkner.
Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Ian's Rationale: "The chairs never got around to resolving their side
of this, so I'll just close this without change. This will likely end
up being done as part of that issue anyway."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_activity.cgi?id=10903


2. NEEDSINFO BUGS:

2.1 Bug 8716: "Replace img Guidance for Conformance Checkers with
Suggested Text for Short Text Alternatives" reported by Laura Carlson.

4. ASSIGNED BUGS:

4.1 Bug 9452: "Handling of additional tracks of a multitrack
audio/video resource" reported by Silvia Pfeiffer.
Ian's comment: "It's way too early to do multitrack.."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9452#c6
Maciej's comment: "I think implementers are at the point where we are
ready to add support for descriptive audio and the like, whether or
not it's in the spec (in addition to captions and text-to-speech
descriptive audio). It would be helpful if the spec gave guidance on
how to do that implementation work."

5.2 Bug 11279: "The 'assigned access key' section doesn't seem to know
