Dear colleagues,
many thanks to those providing feedback in the telco and via email. I updated the page and I do hope that I took all issues into account.
Please have a look at the updated version at http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/wiki/Topic_4_pre-call#List_of_Topics
The main edits have been:
1) Following the format of topic 3 (TC): now three versions (call/main page/email)
2) There were two comments which in my opinion are contradicting to a certain extent: 
a) the broad and comprehenisive description of the field has been appriciated
b) the need to focus the symposium was expressed
Both are valuable and therefore I propose to focus the symposium on the 4 main objectives discussed, but also invite contributions to the broader scope of topics. Perhaps this is an acceptable solution.
3) The concept and term "plane language" is at least mentioned (Topic 4. Guidelines and Standards) - perhaps we should make it more visible?
4) "Easy to Read on the Web" is now used as the title of the Symposium. There was a mixture of this and other titles, e.g. Easy to Read language or East to Read content. This could be discussed but I think it is a minor issue.
5) Step by step the SC lists more names - volunteers from the RDWG still welcome!
And any feedback very much appriciated.
