Hi Renjish,

Thanks for your comments. my views:

That sounds indeed reasonable. Let's hear what other people think.

In my view, the direction to be taken would appear in both technology 
and challenges section.
Particularly, in the challenges section, for each identified item, when 
possible, we might be able to propose workaround that possible today in 
specific cases, and more long term R&D or standardization activities. 
e.g. for illiteracy and content in local languages, possible options 
today is to either use trusted intermediaries (e.g. VPO) or to use 
non-textual channel such as voice. On more longer term, the association 
of menaingful icons with voice annotation is a potential direction to 
follow. so that's why i propose that future directions to be explored in 
each challenge. and also in each technology when appropriate. e.g. in 
voice, availability of fully standard-compliant free and open source 
voice browser, or definition of usability guidelines are challenges tied 
to a specific technology and should appear in the releated section.
