So thanks to Markel for the excellent additional notes at:

http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/wiki/Benchmarking_Web_Accessibility_Metrics

Wheve chosen this topic - 'Benchmarking Web Accessibility Metrics' - 
with specific focus on test collections, metrics that measure 
accessibility in terms of conformance and accessibility in use, metric 
properties, and scoring and comparisons of metrics.

We now have our first 2 co-editors in Markel Vigo and Giorgio Brajnik.

If anyone would like to join Markel or Giorgio please do contact either 
Shadi or myself. To let you know what this means:

[snip http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/process#credits ]-----

RDWG publications such as teleconference seminar proceedings, W3C 
Working Group (WG) Notes, and other teleconference seminar results will 
have the following writership:

     Editors - a core group of (~1-3) people who have shepherded the 
development of the publication through the process and led it to completion;
     Authors - anyone who has contributed written substantial content 
such as a section, appendix, or other supporting material that has been 
included in the publication;
     Contributors - everyone else who has contributed, such as by taking 
part in the discussions, but not having written any substantial parts of 
the publication.

When referring to the entire publication, editors will be the only names 
in the editors listing (in order of contribution) of the reference, and 
the first names in the author list. The author list will be formed by 
these editors names and the rest of the authors following in 
alphabetical order. Finally, contributors will be listed in a section or 
appendix, and will be implied by 'et al' being appended to the authors list.

When referring to a formally authored section or appendix (think book 
chapter), the editors will be the only names in the editors listing (in 
order of contribution). The author list will be formed by the authors of 
that particular part in order of contribution. Finally, contributors 
will be listed in a sub-section, and will be implied by 'et al' being 
appended to the authors list.
