Hi folks,

it might be intersting to compare the requirements that AT developers have
from the DOM with the W3C Note about requirements for a component
extension (i.e. plugin) interface - http://www.w3.org/TR/CX

One of the assumptions is that a plugin can itself be asked to call a plugin
- and the paralell in my mind is that an assitive technology might call the
browser as if it were a plugin.

Feedback from assistive technology developers on that document would also be
