This was discussed on both the A11y TF and HTML WG calls this morning:

   http://www.w3.org/2012/10/04-html-a11y-minutes.html
   http://www.w3.org/2012/10/04-html-wg-minutes.html

The proposal is to add the following at the end of the "Scope of Work" 
section:

   The task force may also create specifications that extend
   deliverables of the HTML Working Group, in the area of
   accessibility. The Accessibility Task Force will have decision
   authority over the contents of such extension specifications. Any
   such specifications will be considered jointly produced by the HTML
   Working Group and PFWG, for purposes of W3C Publication. This means
   that, as with any w3c joint task force deliverable, both Working
   Groups must approve transitions such as First Public Working Draft
   or Last Call. It also means that documents will create Patent
   Policy obligations in both groups. Members of either Working Group
   who have technical comments or objections on Task Force
   publications are expected to raise them in the context of the Task
   Force.

Current Task force work statement:

Comments that were received in the A11y TF call were generally 
favorable.  No additional comments were received in the HTML WG call. 
If this change is acceptable as is, or only received minor 
clarifications, we likely will proceed to an overall CfC on the 2014 
plan early next week:
