I think what I can give you before Tuesday is my concurrence, as 
chair of PFWG, that you have
appropriately applied the process and that

a) these comments came in long after the close of LC, too late to 
impact the CR draft, and hence
b) these issues should not impact the CR transition one way or the other.

On the content of the Appendix, or the sufficiency of this approach 
to address these
issues, I don't think I can speak ex_cathedra for the group; and I 
would like to accept
you offer to take a little more time (that is to say after the 
[presumedly positive decision])
CR transition meeting on Tuesday.

Is it OK with you that I continue the process I have started to find 
a date and time for
a special call [7]?

Please let me thank the WebCGM WG at this point for your diligent 
pursuit of accessibility
feedback far above and beyond the requirements of the Process, and 
your proactive
approach to the issues that have been raised by the development of 
this draft appendix.


/chair, PFWG
