At the face to face you took an action to add a sentence to Lisa's proposal 
about universal access.  [1]

Here is what we recorded you as saying, "PB Appendix possibly good way, a 
sentence to talk about universal aspect. Then , or ; phrase that says, 
"although there are other options <link> for optimization." That would link 
to separate document. Part of reference to Universal Access"

However, note that in Lisa's proposal she says "optimized for different 
situations" in the last sentence.  Could this be the link to the 
appendix/server-side techniques that you were envisioning?
