As I was doing the techniques for B.1.2 (Ensure that the tool preserves 
all unrecognized markup and accessibility information during 
transformations and conversions. [Priority 2]) I noticed that the 
success criteria are overly complicated.

So I propose we restructure:

1. All transformations and conversions supported by the authoring tool 
must always meet both of the following conditions:
(a) The author is notified before any unrecognized markup is permanently 
removed.
(b) All accessibility information is handled according to at least one 
of the following:
(i) Be preserved in the target format such that the information can be 
"round-tripped" (i.e. converted or transformed back into its original 
form) by the same authoring tool.
(ii) Be preserved in some other way in the target format.
(iii) Be removed only after the author has been notified and the content 
has been preserved in its original format

to be:

1. All transformations and conversions supported by the authoring tool 
must notify the author before any unrecognized markup is permanently 
removed.
2. All transformations and conversions supported by the authoring tool 
must always handle accessibility information according to at least one 
of the following:
(a) preserve it in the target format such that the information can be 
"round-tripped" (i.e. converted or transformed back into its original 
form) by the same authoring tool.
(b) preserve it in some other way in the target format.
(c) be removed only after the author has been notified and the content 
has been preserved in its original format.


Thoughts?


Cheers,
Jan
