FW: [REMINDER] [Fwd: Call for Review: WAI-ARIA Updated Working Drafts]

Hi Tim,

I have taken a look at "WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices 1.0" and I have a 
few thoughts:

First, it seems to be a very comprehensive resource on how to use ARIA. 
I think we should plug it in to ATAG 2.0 where relevant as a related 
resource.

Second, I didn't see anything that I think warrants any comments by the 
AUWG group. I would only observe that the process of using ARIA is 
complicated and any automation of the process by authoring tools would 
seem to be welcome.

Cheers,
Jan
