5 of the remaining 18 HTML5 CR bugs are accessibility related [1].  The HTML WG Editors and Chairs would like to have a discussion of the A11Y-related CR bugs at the HTML WG F2F this week in Shenzhen.  I know that many A11Y TF members that are in Shenzhen are attending the Indie UI WG meeting on Thu and Fri. 

Would it be possible for some subset of the A11Y TF members to participate in the HTML WG F2F to discuss these bugs?  In addition if Steve could join us remotely we could consider scheduling this item for Thu or Fri afternoon to take into account the China to Europe time change.

The accessibility-related CR bugs that we would like to discuss are listed below:

1. Bug 18574 - @hidden should have a weak mapping to aria-hidden=true

2. Bug 19277 - Relationship and precedence of hidden="" and display:none should be clarified/defined

3. Bug 20987 - The main element could do with some more examples

4. Bug 21579 - Empty @alt should not imply role="presentation" if the <img> has @usemap

5. Bug 23380 - review other aria state mappings to see if they need to be explicitly allowed
