Sam:

The HTML-A11Y Task Force Text Subteam will consider whether to update
its position at its teleconference Tuesday. I expect that there will be
a desire to do so regardless of which Issue 204 is adopted and that this
will require several weeks. I'll provide an update following the call
Tuesday.
