This is the third agreement.

Does anyone think that our guidelines really address the needs of users with 
cognitive disabilities, (beyond mild disabilities such as dyslexia that has 
been reasonably well treated and/or overcome) ?

By the way, that is not to say that the group did not try. Just that we 
could not balance it with other needs like appropriateness for all sites. I 
also suggesting that we do keep working on an extension guideline that does 
address  the needs of users with cognitive disabilities.

All the best
