Jan, Jutta and I have been discussing leveraging the effort we will be 
putting into testing ATAG implementations for Candidate Review, so that 
we will end up with test cases that can be shared publicly. In my 
opinion, we can maximize the impact of ATAG 2.0 by making it easy for 
tool developers to just import our ATAG test cases into their existing 
Quality Assurance platform.

Our plan is to set up a sample that you can take to your QA departments 
and see if it will work for them.  This is an area where I don't have a 
lot of good information about commercial QA testing platforms and what 
is required for importing test cases.

Right now, we are giving you a heads-up that this information will be 
coming and allow you some warning to start setting up contacts with your 
QA department heads or other appropriate people who will have 
information about your internal QA testing system.

I don't want to use the old ATAG 1 formats. There are some new formats 
coming from WAI Evaluation Tools group, that I hope I can share shortly, 
but we do not have to be tied to them.
