This looks good but I would not limit non-web-based interfaces to platform accessibility architecture only.  Things like the DOM aren't really considered accessibility architecture but are used heavily by things like screen readers.  It would probably be worth calling out things like "and other platform protocols used to provide this information"

Subject: AUWG F2F Action Items

ACTION: JR to propose a definition of programmatically determined.

programmatically determined (programmatically determinable)

When information is encoded in a way that allows different software, including assistive technologies, to extract and present the information to users in different modalities. For non-Web-based user interfaces, this means making use of a platform accessibility architecture. For Web-based user interfaces, this means following WCAG 2.0 so that the user agent can pass on the information.

ACTION: JR to write a definition for Display Preferences.

display preferences

The author(s) choice of settings (e.g., *display settings*, keyboard bindings, etc.).

display settings

The characteristics of a display that can be modified. The 
characteristics vary according to the modality of the display:

audio: the characteristics of audio output of music, sounds and speech. 
Examples include volume, speech voices, voice speed, and voice emphasis.

visual: the characteristics of the on-screen rendering of text and 
graphics. Examples include fonts, sizes, colors, spacing, positioning, 
and contrast.

tactile: the characteristics of haptic outputs. Examples include the 
magnitude of the haptic forces and the types of vibration.

ACTION: JR to write a proposed definition of "available"

Actually, I think because "available" is used in a variety of ways it 
would be better to wait for the "Understanding" bullets in the 
techniques - in the meantime here's a suggested wordsmithing of A.2.1.1:

A.2.1.1 Alternative Content: If an editing view renders Web content that 
has recognized alternative content, provide the alternative content to 
the author(s). (Level A)
