ISSUE-122 shalott-example: Call for revisions

From: Maciej Stachowiak <mjs@apple.com>

Message-id: <CDD8B2FB-EB18-4EB9-9291-D79E573263C3@apple.com>
To: HTML WG <public-html@w3.org>

The Chairs have reviewed the proposals for ISSUE-122 shalott-example, and find them both wanting as written. If they are not updated within a week, by February 14, 2011, they will be dropped from consideration. If no proposals remain, the issue will be closed without prejudice.

* Steve's null Change Proposal does not apply a consistent resolution to all WG drafts, as previously mentioned by the chairs: <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/thematicimages>.

* Laura's proposal to remove text alternative examples goes considerably beyond the scope of the issue, in the judgment of the chairs <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/TextAlternativesIssue122>. The original scope of the issue was about the details of one particular example. This proposal removes all accessibility advice for textual equivalents, and in the course of doing so entirely deletes a WG draft. It is reasonable to propose this, but not as part of this narrow issue. We offer the following options:

   ** Revise the Change Proposal to fit the narrower scope of ISSUE-122 (just the one example that was at issue).

   ** File a bug requesting the changes in the proposal, and if necessary escalate it. It will then be treated as its own issue.

It's fine to do either or both of these things (or none if there is no desire to pursue the issue further).

Regards,
Maciej
