It's fine for one person to submit multiple Change Proposals. And that won't get in the way of deferring the bug to LC, if we have consensus to do that.

The key issue here is making sure that we have agreement from the accessibility community to proceed to Last Call without this being addressed. There are only 6 days until the deadline, so I'm not sure we can get agreement on that so quickly.

That's why I recommend still submitting a Change Proposal, while we review whether this issue can be deferred.
