In response to recent discussions, please find below several 
additional proposals from me for additional frontmatter and 
introduction edits for our current WCAG2ICT draft.

1. In the ABSTRACT, where it says:
     "It provides informative guidance (guidance that is not 
normative and does not set requirements). This document is part of a 
series of technical and educational documents..."

I propose to replace this with:
     "It provides informative guidance (guidance that is not 
normative and does not set requirements). This document is intended 
to become a Working Group Note that will be part of a series of 
technical and educational documents..."


2. In the STATUS section, please re-organize the first paragraph, 
which currently reads:
     "This document is a W3C Working Draft being developed by the 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG2ICT-TF/>WCAG2ICT Task Force 
(<http://www.w3.org/2012/04/WCAG2ICT-WorkStatement.html>Work 
Statement) under the coordination and review of the Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines Working Group 
(<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/>WCAG WG), which is part of the Web 
Accessibility Initiative (<http://www.w3.org/WAI/>WAI) of the World 
Wide Web Consortium (<http://www.w3.org/>W3C). The WCAG2ICT Task 
Force's work is consistent with the 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/06/charter>WCAG WG Charter that 
includes the following under its 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/06/charter#scope>scope: "Coordinating 
with other entities adopting and using WCAG 2.0."  Following further 
public review and refinement, it is expected to progress to a 
<http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr#q75>W3C Working Group Note.

with the following paragraph, which would read:
     "This document is a Working Draft being developed by the 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG2ICT-TF/>WCAG2ICT Task Force 
(<http://www.w3.org/2012/04/WCAG2ICT-WorkStatement.html>Work 
Statement) under the coordination and review of the Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines Working Group 
(<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/>WCAG WG), which is part of the Web 
Accessibility Initiative (<http://www.w3.org/WAI/>WAI) of the World 
Wide Web Consortium (<http://www.w3.org/>W3C). Following further 
public review and refinement, it is expected to progress to a 
<http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr#q75>Working Group 
Note. The WCAG2ICT Task Force's work is consistent with the 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/06/charter>WCAG WG Charter that 
includes the following under its 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/06/charter#scope>scope: "Coordinating 
with other entities adopting and using WCAG 2.0." "


3. In the INTRODUCTION, where it says:
     "This Working Draft provides informative guidance (guidance that 
is not normative, and that does not set requirements) with regard to 
the interpretation and application of 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/>Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 
(WCAG) 2.0. Specifically, this Working Draft provides informative 
guidance on applying WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA success criteria to 
non-Web information and communications technologies (ICT), 
specifically non-Web documents and software."

I propose replacing with:
     "This Working Draft provides informative guidance (guidance that 
is not normative, and that does not set requirements) with regard to 
the interpretation and application of 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/>Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 
(WCAG) 2.0. This document is intended to become a <a 
href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr#q75">Working 
Group Note</a> (in contrast to WCAG 2.0, which is a W3C 
Recommendation and also an ISO standard.) Specifically, this Working 
Draft provides informative guidance on applying WCAG 2.0 Level A and 
AA success criteria to non-Web information and communications 
technologies (ICT), specifically non-Web documents and software."
