Hi everyone,

I'm OK with Andi's proposal. Just a minor change in the words. Instead of
"device independent services" I'd rather have "device independent input
services" to clarify.

Best regards,
Loïc

  I'm hoping this gets us past our logjam on "keyboard interface". The SC
  doesn't actually say the keyboard interface has to be supported directly
  by the software. It just says the functionality has to be operable via
  the keyboard interface.

  As long as platform software device independent services layer has
  sufficient support such that when a keyboard is attached, AT software can
  utilize the services to operate an application via the keyboard, then
  applications that support operation via the device independent services
  can in fact be operated via a "keyboard interface". The note is intended
  to clarify this scenario.
