Hi everyone,

back from holidays, I am trying to catch up with discussions now.

I do not mind WAEM even though I do not think it is particularly easy  
to pronounce (other then spelling out double-U - E - A - M).

I have some concern regarding the W for "website", as in the current  
full title
"Website Accessibility Evaluation Methodology". The "WC" of WCAG  
sounds a lot more general than the term "website". This also relates  
to the important comments by Aaron Leventhal regarding the scope of  
the methodology, tool independence, and the possible need to cover  
different web content and UA scenarios.

Is what we develop here focused on websites and not on things like web  
apps for mobile UAs? If we want to be as general as WCAG we might need  
to change the full name of the methodology and accordingly, the acronym.

Regards,
Detlev
