Well, in audio the viewport is essentially defined by the point of regard. In
a braille system the viewport may be a little larger. In a graphic
screen-based system the viewport can be much larger (depending on things like

  Checkpoint 9.1 in the 1 September draft [1] reads:

  only. I have trouble making sense of this requirement for audio
  viewports. (What does "in" mean in that context?).
