Hi there Jan,

Thanks for this - looking at these it seems there is a high degree of  
synergy between UAAG and some of the Personalisation Roadmap and I  
would hope our experience would be called up on for some of it. In  
some ways I like to think of accessibility as mainly a case of  
extreme personalisation. Do you think it is worth talking about this  
and interacting more with the personalisation people?

Cheers
Si.
