Hi Michael,

During the widget group's May 20 call, we discussed your comment [1]  
and agreed the use of "tactile" was an accidental oversight and as  
such, we resolved to remove it from the spec:

  http://www.w3.org/2010/05/20-wam-minutes.html#item07

For the purposes of closing the LC comment loop, please reply to  
Robin's e-mail and indicate if you are satisfied (or not) with the  
group's decision to remove "tactile".

-Thanks, Art Barstow
