Janina, I won't be present at the telecom today. I support the inclusion of longdesc in the specification, however I don’t support and would not vote for a formal objection from the task force at this time. I believe there is still room to work through the issue after the first LC stage. If the specification was to reach proposed CR/PR stage without satisfactory conclusion of the issue, then in my opinion that would be the time to raise a FO.

Thanks,
Sean.

Hi Janina,

Regrets due to a recurring work conflict.

I too would like to register my support for the longdesc change
proposal and/or both resolutions agreed during the Text sub group
telecon on Monday. Thanks.

Best Regards,
Laura
