As the guidelines document itself becomes more self-reflexive in this 
regard we can talk more honorably about this matter. As a group we should 
take it upon ourselves to provide illustrations that illustrate the 
importance of illustration.

I have tried, however naively to make a start in this direction 
[http://pair.com/xguide.htm] as has Wendy in her "icon" accompanying 
checkpoint 3.4 [http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/#supplement-text].

I think it should become a regular topic on the list - suggested 
illustrations and discussions thereof. The time is past when we can 
straight-facedly claim that they are either impossible or unimportant.

I hope I am not alone in this stand?
