Jf,

It's not an example of accessible pdf necessarily, just a document that
contains the spec.  I'm sure there is a problem that can be solved here.

Too perfect...

1) available as (what else) a PDF (only?)
2) attempting to access this document produces an error message:
"The file is damaged and could not be repaired."

A shining example of accessible PDFs?
