As per Sam's request, this e-mail is a report of the status of issues on 
the agenda that have actions due before 2009-06-26 (11 days from now), 
from the persective of the spec.

ISSUE-31 (missing-alt): What to do when a reasonable text equivalent is 
unknown/unavailable?

   I haven't yet read or responded to the following feedback:

      http://www.w3.org/mid/20090611013045.GA25694@sonata.rednote.net


ISSUE-32 (table-summary): how to provide a summary of a table, e.g. for 
unsighted navigation?

   There are 81 e-mails on this subject that I haven't yet read carefully
   or responded to:

      http://canvex.lazyilluminati.com/misc/cgi/issues.cgi/folder/summary--blocked-waiting-on-htmlwg

   I'm not sure how to proceed on this topic. The data seems to support 
   the position that summary="" hasn't materially improved accessibility, 
   but this appears to not have convinced advocates of this feature. There 
   are some proposals for other solutions, but it's not clear that any of 
   them are compelling (though I may be wrong, and will find out for 
   sure when I go through the feedback in more detail). Advice from the 
   chairs about how to proceed on this topic would be useful.



ISSUE-35 (aria-processing): Need to define processing requirements for 
aria states and properties when used in html

   I'm waiting for the ARIA group to respond to last call feedback.


ISSUE-4 (html-versioning): HTML Versioning and DOCTYPEs

ISSUE-60 (html5-xhtml-namespace): Reuse of 1999 XHTML namespace is 
potentially misleading/wrong

ISSUE-41 (Decentralized-extensibility): Decentralized extensibility

ISSUE-54 (doctype-legacy-compat): tools that can't generate <!DOCTYPE 
html>

ISSUE-59 (normative-language-reference): Should the HTML WG produce a 
separate document that is a normative language reference and if so what 
are the requirements

   It's not clear to me what needs changing in the spec for these issues.



I continue to seek feedback from the chairs regarding which sections lack 
consensus support from the working group, so that we can remain on track 
for Last Call publication in October.
