Hello, Steven:

Just a brief update to my last email ...

We have determined to extend the ARIA review period to 17 April. An
announcement will be sent to the usual lists momentarilly.

If you will need time beyond 17 April, please simply let us know. We are
prepared to extend this date for you, should you need.

I'm afraid neither I nor Michael will be able to attend HCG this week as
we're deep in the throes of providing @alt guidance to the HTML Wg.

However, I am happy to work with you to insure you have the time you
need. We value your review. I will bring this up on our PF call--about
to begin.

This is just a quick response. I'll return with more substantive soon.
