Jan,

Good to hear of the planned coordination. How do you expect this will 
affect ATAG 2.0's development timeline? Do you think that there are 
issues beyond keyboard that we also need to settle sooner rather than 
later in UAAG 2.0's development in order not to hold ATAG back from a 
return to Last Call Working Draft?
