Sounds reasonable to me.

Subject: Proposal: Change context type label "text" to "visual text"

Hello,

In the 23 October draft [1], the "text" content label includes 
three checkpoints: 3.3, 4.1, and 4.2, all of which refer to
requirements related to visual rendering of text:

  3.3: Blinking and animated text. I assume here that this only
       applies to visual rendering.
  4.1, 4.2: Text size and font family.

Therefore, consistent with our use of the word "text" to 
mean "characters (before rendering)", I propose changing the
content label to "visual text".

 - Ian
