Hi Nicholas

> Raphael, to make sure I understand. What you are proposing is:

> - technologies plus and minus (as already in Stephan's proposal)
> - relation between challenges and technology  + on-going innovations and R&D outlook

I believe that challenges and technologies are relatively separated, and 
each item of each section should have a part on on-going innovation and 
R&D outlook.
What belongs to the challenges section are the characteristics of the 
delivery context, but are not directly related to the technology, and 
sometimes the answer is not in the technology field. one example: 
illiteracy: if you want to deliver e.g. a service of weather forecast to 
illiterate people, i believe you could find in the related entry in the 
challenges section
- what's possible today
	- use literate intermediaries (not a technology solution)
	- use voice applications (specific technology recommendation)
	- use graphics representation if applicable  (this is not specific to a 
technology, graphic is a feature of more than one technology: web 
browser, a dedicated j2me apps, widgets,... )
- on longer term (R&D track)
	- define standardized way of designing culturally relevant meaningful icons
	- define guidelines to make web content accessible to illiterate 
people mixing icons and voice annotation

So, personnaly, i don't think we should create the third part you are
