Hi Gregory,

As the Head of W3C Communications I will simply say that we have
a lot to do and limited resources. Accessibility is important to each
site redesign project that we do. However we have no plans currently to
redesign the entire w3.org at once. We do it piece-by-piece. 

I will keep you posted on how the Systems Team addresses your specific
suggestions for the mailing list archives. They do not usually read this
list nor reply directly to it. This list is managed by the
Communications Team. We receive lots of comments on a variety of topics
and then forward them to the appropriate people.

 _ Ian
