I will be comparing the Smart Headers algorithm to what's currently in the
spec and documenting the differences between them.

On Thursday 23rd November 2008:

<http://www.w3.org/2008/10/23-html-wg-minutes.html#item06>

[[[
BenMillard: [...] I think an Action item would be to document the diff
between the spec and Smart Headers algorithm
]]]

My words were more like "I'll take an Action item [to do this]" but that may 
have been hard to hear.

Seems I don't have authority to Raise an Action for myself. When I go here 
and supply my W3C credentials:

<http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/actions/new>

I get this message (sic):

[[[

]]]

If someone Raises the Action on my behalf then Tracker will better reflect 
the current stage of work. Since my funding runs out on 1st December 2008, 
that seems like a sensible deadline.

I'm treating this work as a priority because of that deadline and because 
Gecko is somewhat interested in mapping HTML table header associations to 
accessibility APIs:
