Hi Gregory,

Thanks for doing this. Some thoughts:

1. In http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule/AccessElement I'm 
wondering about what "optionally, in some other event being delivered" 
could be taken to mean...

...maybe the wording should be more precise. Your example of 
highlighting is more a UI implementation than an "other event that is 
delivered".


2. In http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule/ActivateAttribute I 
think the word "override" in the third sentence was really important. 
Let's tersify.


3. In http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/wiki/AccessModule/KeyMappingBinding I 
want to tersify some more and some of the information seems like it 
belongs in the Activate heading.

Cheers,
Jan
