Hi Richard,

So I talked with David Bolter about his feelings regarding this proposal.
Apparently he has expressed concern about the complexity of this proposal
and did not back up the statement that this had "agreement from the Mozilla
accessibility people".

He had however agreed to look at implementing a prototype of this proposal.
