Review Action Items (see details below)


    1.Next User Agent face-to-face meeting in Boston on 1-2 March 2001


    1.Issue 389: Conformance: Hard to test conformance in an objective 
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#389
      Status: I wrote the reviewer with clarifications and asked for 
comment. No response yet.
      Proposed resolution by IJ: We have reduced some of the conformance 
requirements as a result of the reviewer's comments. We have worked very 
hard on
      this conformance scheme and rejected a number of others. If the 
reviewer has specific suggestions, we will consider them.

    2.Issue 452: Checkpoint 2.2: Review minimal requirement (three options?)
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#452

    3.Issue 454: Checkpoints 3.6/3.7: Should these be Priority 1?
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#454

    4.Issue 455: Guideline 4: Change to "Ensure user control of presentation"?
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#455

    5.Issue 456: Editorial: Need to clarify in section 3.2 that we do not 
mean system APIs
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#456

    6.Issue 457: Checkpoint 5.4: Ambiguity about what exactly required: 
standard APIs only?
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#457

    7.Issue 458: Do link highlighting requirements apply to all zones of an 
image map? What is required granularity?
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#458

    8.Issue 443: Checkpoint 1.4: Device independent access to pointer 
(mouse) specific events.
      Source: http://server.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear-lc2.html#443
      Status: The document currently requires emulation of mouse-specific 
controls by virtue of our requirement that the user must be able to do 
everything through
      the mouse.
      a) Do we want to require the UA to repair device-specific bindings 
specified by the author?
      b) Do we have evidence that the ability to simulate mouse events 
through the keyboard benefits the user?
