I think the "what is the difference between WCAG 1 and 2" and "improvements
in WCAG 2" shouold be combined, and at this stage be a little flexible about
whether we have acheived them or whether they are still aims.

There have been a couple of proposals for definitions of data model. Picking
one doesn't seem too bad.

Both those are editorial, and need not hold up publication of the current

  Per discussion at yesterday's telecon [1] I have updated the working draft
  [2], open issues list [3], and change log [4].  Please read this draft
  before next week's meeting on 18 January 2001.  This is the draft we hope
  to publish as a public working draft the week of 22 January 2001.

  Note that since this is a working draft we don't expect to have consensus
  on everything in this draft.  However, if there is something major that you
  believe needs to be addressed before this is published, please speak up.

  Also note that we will not link to techniques from this draft nor will we
  include priorities.  This is explained in the introduction.

  The changes made to this draft are:
         Reworded Guideline 1 to include capabilities of user agents (as
  well as devices).
         Added a checkpoint to Guideline 1 that addresses graceful
  transformation. Related: open issue #25 and open issue #38.
         Added a checkpoint to Guideline 4 that addresses selecting
  languages that follow these guidelines, followed by a separate checkpoint
  that addresses using the chosen langauge in accordance with its specification.
         Dropped the word "navigate" from the text of Guideline 2.
         Removed the note in checkpoint 3.6 that discussed only expanding
  the first occurence of an abbreviation of acronym. This is open issue #39.
         Added supplementary text to checkpoint 3.6 (define key terms,
  abbreviations, etc.)
         Deleted all of the @@'s. Several in glossary that said "need
  definition" replaced with "Not yet defined."
