Yes, for all the discussion we've had, it seems worthwhile to
elaborate the "Details of accessibility and media-independence features"

Anne, please do.

Also, I see in IRC that you're considering changing "Dropped"
to "Omitted" or some such, but waiting to sync with me. That

something like "in one but not the other" that doesn't
imply that somebody decided to omit it.

disclaimers elsewhere in the document (e.g. in the status section).
