aloha!

in reference to ACTION-10, as documented in:

http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/tracker/actions/10

when i investigated why this action was still listed as "open", i 
discovered that this action was actually "closed" on 2008-07-23 with the 
posting of:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xhtml2/2008Jul/0024.html

i have, therefore, closed ACTION-10 in the XHTML2 Issue Tracker, although, 
depending upon the XHTML2 WG's reaction to:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xhtml2/2008Jul/0024.html

it might be more appropriate to mark this as pending review, given that
the post contains an open question to the XHTML2 WG as to whether the 
PF's answer suffices:

<q 
cite="http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xhtml2/2008Jul/0024.html">

CONCLUSION:

Please inform the PF if this answer satisfies the XHTML2 WG, and if not,
why not and what would the XHTML2 WG suggest?

PF's goal with ARIA is not to champion one approach to declarative
markup over any other, but to enable much needed (and too long delayed)
access to the tag-soup and embedded widgets and controls that
predominate today's (and yesterday's) web, while paving a way towards a
sane and consistent approach to integrating ARIA into whatever host
language needs the semantics and state and property identification which
ARIA provides.
