This pertains to the discussion of "point of regard" in the meeting minutes.

A normative definition can be found in UAAG 1.0 (and correspondingly in the
UAAG 2.0 working draft).
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-UAAG10-20021217/glossary.html

It isn't clear how this could enable the UA to distinguish, for example, a map
displayed on a touch screen as the point of regard, unless there are two touch
actions available, one that establishes the map as point of regard and another
which performs an action (dispatches an event) at a point on the map.

In general, UAAG is a good source of relevant definitions for user interface
terms likely to be useful to this group.
