The Chairs have reviewed this re-open request and believe the request is incomplete since it does not currently explicitly identify the new information that the Chairs should use as the basis of a re-open decision.

Could the A11Y TF please determine how to improve this re-open request since the WG Chairs currently feel is does not justify re-opening ISSUE-31?

Hi Paul,

First let me make this clear.
This is not 'my' proposal it is a proposal that I have recently been tasked to produce for the HTML WG accessibility taskforce.
Due to circumstances there has not been time for the proposal to be vetted and agreed upon by the taskforce prior to it's submission.
If the taskforce decides that they cannot support the contents of the proposal I have submitted on their behalf, and there is no possibility, due to HTML WG process, for modification, to reach a consensus proposal, I will withdraw the proposal I have submitted.

I have attempted to make clear the 2 reasons for re-opening. I have also outlined a set of changes.

The WG Decision Policy gives the following description of a re-open request:
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy-v2.html?rev=1.38;content-type=text%2Fhtml#reopening<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/%7Echeckout%7E/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy-v2.html?rev=1.38;content-type=text%2Fhtml#reopening>

1. Submit a Reopen Request
A request to reopen an issue should be submitted to the public-html@w3.org<mailto:public-html@w3.org> mailing list. A request to reopen should identify the issue to be reopened, and should include the following:
*         Material new information relevant to the decision, for example of the type identified by the decision itself as relevant.
*         A revised Change Proposal incorporating the new information as rationale.
For reopening to be seriously considered, this new information and proposal must be likely to have been enough to materially change the decision, lacking refutation or additional new information,
When I read your re-open request at http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/movealt I cannot find a "revised change proposal incorporating the new information as rationale".  Do you have such a change proposal?

Your re-open request appears to be more of a history of how ISSUE-31 was processed and the current state of the HTML5 specifications than a request that provides "material new information relevant to the decision".  Can you please more clearly identify the "material new information" you are providing as your rationale for re-opening ISSUE-31?
