Guidelines by reviewing a variety of user agents (both graphical desktop and
dependent user agents) on a variety of platforms. This review will help us
determine which requirements of the guidelines have been implemented and
which requirements have not.

however, that the parenthetic phrase be updated to:

<proposed who="GJR">
