Thanks Makoto for your continuous support for EPUB accessibility specifications as well as the feedback for Ace.
As Romain mentioned, you can submit the requirements to the issue tracker. We will be working on plan for next year in November. In case the requests cannot be incorporated in version 1.0, we will try to implement in next year.


With regards
Avneesh

Dear Makoto,

Great, very much looking forward to your feedback!


  Now, Ace reports an error when accessMode,
  accessModeSufficient, or accessibilityFeature is
  absent.  We are wondering if Ace will suggest
  particular values of these metadata. Is such 
  an extension already planned?

Yes, this is definitely on our radar, but we're not yet sure we can make it in v1.0.0.
This is tracked as issue #35:
  https://github.com/daisy/ace/issues/35


  We are also wondering if the use of Javascript might 
  cause performance problems if Ace starts to examine 
  all characters (e.g., whether every CJK character is 
  in JIS X 0213) for example.

I'd be happy to learn more about any performance issue that you may encounter. Feel free to report issues directly to our tracker:
  https://github.com/daisy/ace/issues

Best,
Romain.
