Hi Johannes,

Yes, it did come up during the f2f - thanks for reminding us of it!

Thank you also for considering the input of ERT WG on your response to 
this comment that you have submitted.

My reading is that WCAG WG does plan to address this issue in the future 
updates of the Techniques documents, but they may not do it just now. I 
could live with this compromise rather than delay the publication.

I propose that this is discussed during tomorrow's call (which I will 
not be able to attend) as it is time-sensitive.
