I like Loretta's posting too.

But I think we should consider keeping the plug in ref.  people don't always
think of  plug ins as user agents and we should not figure they will have
read another doc.

I wrote a reply to this thread earlier but it doesn't seem to have made it
to the list.

Loretta's proposal is substantially superior to the existing wording.
I suggest removing all mention of "plug-ins" from guideline 4.2, since they
are included in the UAAG 1.0 definition of "user agent". Thus, the use of
the term "plug-in" in guideline 4.2 is unnecessary and redundant.

Guideline 4.2 will be up for revision anyway as the working group strives to
address the problems surrounding user agent support. For the moment I
recommend accepting Loretta's proposal (excluding the term "plug-in"), while
recognizing that these issues are still very much open for discussion.
