Yes, I believe that a W3C working group note on aggregation of
accessibility assessment data is the right way to go ahead. It would be
very useful to have a W3C strategy on this.

What is required to release a Working Group Note on aggregation, and
what are the further procedures?

Would the ERT group stand behind such a note, or is it outside of scope,
so that it must be done under another working group (e.g. WAI or EOWG)
or a new one?

What would be your gut-feeling for a time frame for getting something
started on this?

Best regards,
