slide 2 is post-dated

slides 4 & 5 don't relate to the "Benefits of WCAG 2.0"

slides 11, 12, & 13 have a relationship that may not be clear without "being there"?

slides 17 - 20 might benefit from showing the examples rather than just describing them?

My reading of Wayne's quick tip card content proposal focuses on the really important benefit of 
WCAG 2.0: it is "user-centered". That merits inclusion on either: slide 29; or a separate slide

I guess much of the above should be (if it's not already) in the accompanying notes.

Updated "Benefits of WCAG 2.0" presentation material is at:

Please review it, send comments to the list, and prepare to discuss it at the upcoming 
teleconference. Specifically:
* Does this cover the topic sufficiently? Is anything missing?
Note that we want this to be very tightly focused on the benefits; the About WCAG presentation < 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/WCAG20_about/>  covers broader topics.
* Is there anything we might want to cut to make it shorter and more succinct? 

Background e-mail is below.
Minutes from previous EOWG discussion is at < http://www.w3.org/2008/05/09-eo-minutes#item03>
