Agreed on F2F. I assume March is earliest we can do it. right?  I am not 
available the week of March 5. 
Will WCAG be "revised" LC by then?  Shouldn't we should delay until WCAG 
reaches this state before we release a LC.

Andi Snow-Weaver was (independently) stating the need for a "partial 
credit" scheme as I have tried several times in the past to get.  I know 
having some hard minimums of support is good for accessibility, but not 
always practical from a tool vendor point of view. 

For example, creating an accessible tool is quite independent from 
creating a tool that makes accessible content.  Achieving either is 
difficult, but getting
no level of compliance with only one of these achieved seems not 

PS I have asked for a general review by IBMers (beyond Becky Gibson). That 
will not time out by the stated deadline but should be ready by any F2F.

Hi all,

I thought that call went quite well.

At this point, I think the pile of comments is big enough to justify 
another F2F - the goal of which would be a Last Call WD.
