I have a political problem with 'repair' vs. 'implementation.'

The UA group has been developing an allergy to assigning "repair" functions
to the user agent.  On the other hand, my analysis suggests that there is a
sliding scale of how much 'deconstruction' is involved before building an
appropriate view in the 'implementation' of the "transforms gracefully"
concept.  

So if the UA group won't touch it if it's 'repair' I am concerned with
labeling these techniques 'repair.'

I will have to spin the application of the same methods as "augmented
analysis" prior to "view building."

If we can call them "Analysis and Reconstruction" instead of Analysis and
Repair and Jon is comfortable that the UA [including the team of commodity
browser and AT without allocating the functions for the moment] may do some
additional analysis and reconstruction on the way to the realized view(s)
then we are cool all around.

Oops.  I just realized that I slipped back into VHDL compiler lingo and
substituted 'analysis' for 'evaluation.'  Actually that is the component
function.  The evaluation and repair end-to-end jobs are done by (1)
analysis and (2) reconstruction techniques that are applied in that order
in both scenarios with minor variations in how each phase is done.

Cute version:

Title:  Analysis and Reconstruction Techniques for Assessment and Repair
Tools.
