I finally got around to updating the issues list [1] per our telecon on 
Monday [2].  I've been going through a few more and here are my 
conclusions. We can include this as a brief discussion on Monday's telecon.

One thing that I did different from the decision on Monday, was put #17 as 
an issue for xtech rather than ATAG.  It's requesting a definition of 
multimedia which seems to go more with xtech than atag.

Here are the other changes i've made:

#20 Allow user to change the units of measure.
a new technique for ATAG-TECHS, therefore ATAG issue.

#22 Check document for missing quote markup
Moved to WCAG [HTML Tech] since need guidance on use of <Q>. There was a 
thread in January 2001, but I don't think any resolution.

#23. ABBR values should be shorter than 15 characters.
Moved to ATAG.  This is describing a possible technique for identifying 
abbreviations and if they are pronounceable.  Looks like a someday pile and 
not something critical.

#25. Testing embedded technologies
Moved to ATAG.

#26. Server-side to client-side image map conversion
Moved to ATAG.

#27. Logical tab order

#31. Provide general information about a site
Moved to ATAG

#43. Priorities for techniques based on level of heuristics

#44. HTTP headers - check for refresh?
Uncertain of the issue.  Does anyone remember this one?  William? you 
raised the question.  LK took an action item, but I don't see any 
follow-up.  Should we consider this closed?

#47. Checking A elements for valid text content

#48. Checking for quoted text
Moved to ATAG.

#50. Suggested repair for updating equivalents of dynamic content
Moved to [WCAG Scripting Tech]. Although this is a discussion about 
repairing dynamic content, I think the definition of what it takes to be 
equivalent needs to come from WCAG.

#51. Identifying OBJECTs
Moved to ATAG

#52. Checking for device independent event handlers
Moved to WCAG [Scripting Tech]

#53-60 - didn't get to yet.
