This document appears to have successfully
incorporated the feedback we gave you on the
Requirements Note.  Thank you very much.

/chair, PFWG


You asked us to help you respond to a comment
you received from Sam Hartmans, with
accessibility reasoning.


Kenny Johar looked at this and wants clarification from Sam
before responding.

Janina Sajka made the following good point:

The sonicon for change in "security sensitivity" needs
to be timely.  But what defines timely is not the visual
display but the change in the severity or sensitivity of
potential system responses to potentially-erroneous user
input.  So what you should do is define (in abstract terms)
the event as the change in input exposure to risk or
hazard.  Then tie prompt announcement of this in visual
and auditory media directly to that state change, not
daisy-chain the timing of one off the other. Both the
  auditory and visual displays need to be
prompt in announcing elevated-risk states.  Not that they
need to be strictly aligned in start time.  Where possible
the start-time alignment should be achieved as well.

Let's continue that discussion on public-usable-authentication@w3.org
and not have PFWG _consensus_ in the loop to
slow resolution.
