I agre that forming the WCAG is part of the business of this list. But it is
also important that this working group is around to explain wat they meant
in WCAG 1 - there is nobody more qualified than the working group.

So I think it is important that we keep both kinds of questions on this list.

  It seems to me that this list is developing two function.

  1) To form WCAG

  2) To help accessibility experts understand debate and help each other make sites accessible. Now I think we always did help each other out, and this is a good and important thing, but personally I like like to subscribe to one list that does one thing and anther list that does something else.

  It may not be the W3C aim to make the second list, but in the mean time I am finding the WCAG list a bit overfull due to its evolved secondary porpoise. Then WCAG GL can be dedicated for people who have a reason to be setting guidelines not just understand them.

  I am happy to volunteer to set up a general WCAG discussion forum. It also may help people feel free to ask newbee question, without sounding stupid.

  Does this seem like a good idea? anyone interested
