aloha, all!

first, apologies for not meeting my self-imposed 24 hour deadline to
present this material for UAWG review...

second, i decided that the "best" and most expeditious way to review
the proposed rewording for the Access Module draft was to use the 
UA WG wiki, so that WG members could review each section and its 
proposed amendments in context, and to ensure that the WG has the 
best opportunity to comment upon the proposed rewording by reference 
to a centralized source...

the pertinent URIs for the Access Module re-wording proposals are 
linked one-to-another, beginning with an introduction to the problems 
we are seeking to rectify, as well as including pointers to previous 
discussions on each topic, but for the record here are the URIs of 
each wiki article, listed in the order in which they should be 
reviewed:

1. http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule
2. http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule/AccessElement
3. http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule/ActivateAttribute
4. http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule/KeyMappingBinding

NOTE that since MoinMoin does not handle actual HTML/XHTML correctly, 
the proposed additional text, which i attempted to mark 
programmatically using the INS element, is explicitly marked by an 
opening and closing INS tag.

i hope that this series of wiki articles provides a solid foundation
upon which to coalesce the best possible wording -- what kept me from 
getting this material out sooner is a cluster headache, which is not 
very conducive to any attempts at coherence, conciseness or clarity, 
so any and all comments -- from the smallest grammatical nits to 
proposals for how to better integrate the additional text into the 
Access Module's extant text will be GREATLY appreciated...

thank you for your patience and attention to detail,
gregory.
