Hello Chairs,

Just so you know what my plans are....

I've collated most of the feedback from the wiki and organized it by  
principle and type of change requested: <http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/DesignPrinciplesReview 

The only remaining wiki feedback that needs organizing is everything  
relating to the "Pave the Cowpaths" principle; I'll do that next.  
After that, I will fold in anything the email feedback I know of that  
wasn't in the wiki at all, and anything arising from the

At that point, I'll let the list know that the feedback is all  
gathered and they should send mail if they have an important point  
they want to make that has been missed. And then I'll start making  
changes to the spec in response to feedback. I imagine more feedback  
will come in over time, as a result of the survey.

I think the two trickiest areas will be the "Pave the Cowpaths"  
principle, where understandings diverge and there is support or  
opposition based on different understandings, and "Universal Access"  
where some accessibility advocates have asked that it be worded much  
more strongly than its current form or the other principles.
