I realize that WCAG 2 requires more complexity than that description, 
but perhaps you could summarize the 2001 meeting for the IG list. I sent 
that thread to the GL list in case one of the senior Working Group 
members wanted to attempt some public relations damage control.

In last week's call, someone (was it Kerstin?) mentioned that WCAG 
didn't seem so complex once someone fully explained how all the pieces 
fit together, and why all the pieces were necessary. Perhaps we can work 
on a short, plain English introduction; essentially, a executive summary 
of WCAG 2.

Kerstin (or whoever said that), please reply to me off-list.
