A backlog of 91 a11y bugs on the HTML5 Spec await task force decision
of whether to apply the a11ytf keyword or not. Details are in section
5.

Details are as follows.


1. ESCALATED BUGS:

1.1 Bug 10853: "HTML5 lacks a verbose description mechanism" reported
by Gregory J. Rosmaita.
Sam Ruby had removed the TrackerRequest keyword on October 12.
Martin added TrackerIssue keyword on October 19 saying: "Bug triage
sub-team adding TrackerIssue keyword since this is related to
ISSUE-30.
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10853#c5
Shelley Powers commented on October 20: "It's inappropriate to remove
TrackerRequest because this bug is only incidentally related to the
Issue 30 decision...I agree on this being a TrackerIssue. I do not
agree that this should be associated with a previously decided issue,
because this bug is not asking that longdesc be returned, but that
something be created to provide the functionality that longdesc
provided. The original bug provided very clear and very concise
requirements for this replacement."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10853#c6

Note: Bug 10853 depends on bug 10455:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10455

Question to the task force Chairs and members: What is the
Accessibility Task Force position on Bug 10853 and 10455?

In addition please note that longdesc research continues for John
Foliot's Formal Objection:

 * Examples In the Wild (approaching 100 sites using longdesc)
   http://www.d.umn.edu/~lcarlson/research/ld.html#wild
 * Guidelines, Laws, Policy, and Standards
   http://www.d.umn.edu/~lcarlson/research/ld.html#glps
 * Tools (browsers, assistive technology, authoring tools)
   http://www.d.umn.edu/~lcarlson/research/ld.html#tools
 * Online Tutorials and Documentation
   http://www.d.umn.edu/~lcarlson/research/ld.html#tutorials
 * HTML5 ISSUE 30 Info:
   http://www.d.umn.edu/~lcarlson/research/ld.html#issue
 * Notice of Impending Formal Objection to HTML5 Issue 30 Decision
(@longdesc) - John Foliot
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Aug/0027.html

Question to the task force Chairs and members: Will the Accessibility
Task Force be formally supporting John's longdesc Formal Objection? Is
this something that this group will help John pursue?

2d context spec"" reported by Steve Faulkner.

1.5 Bug 9077: "Lady of Shalott example doesn't really 'enhance the
themes or subject matter of the page content'" reported by Ian 'Hixie'
Hickson.
Ian had asked that Bug 9077 be deescalated.
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9077#c8
Sam Ruby's response:
"Call for proposals went out on 15 September:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Sep/0182.html
We received a proposal on 13 October:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Oct/0182.html
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/thematicimages
The chairs have agreed that withdrawing the issue after a change
proposal has been received is not appropriate. Ian: do you have a
realistic deadline in mind?  Barring an acceptable suggestion, the
plan is to issue a call for consensus on the change proposals that we
have got on Wednesday morning."
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9077#c9
Close ISSUE-122 (shalott-example) by Amicable Consensus
Sam: If there are no objections, we will close ISSUE-122 on October 28th.
