We expect Cynthia's proposal to emerge from the A11Y TF in about 10 days.  She will finalize her current proposal based on input early next week and then the TF will be polled as to the final version's acceptability.

The actual best plan would be for you to participate in the A11Y TF discussions but if you cannot then when the proposal arrives at the HTML WG you will have an opportunity to respond.  

Our request to expedite your proposal for Issue 93 was simply meant to facilitate an earlier conclusion to both of these issues.

My change proposal for Issue 93 is due March 31st.

Has Cynthia's proposal been put forth as a formal change proposal for 
Issue 32? The reason I ask, is that I'll incorporate a counter-proposal 
to the Issue 32 proposal, in conjunction with my Issue 93 change 
proposal. And I suppose the counter is true -- Cynthia's proposal will 
be counter to mine, to remove Details altogether from the spec.

Regardless, the Issue 93 proposal is one I can't do early, I have 
technical proofs I need to create for this one, and they will take time.
