Status request: Comment - 25. XHTML Role Access Module (Message-ID: <007d01c5678a$610d3350$6401a8c0@bosshog> )

On June 2, 2005, a formal comment was submitted regarding the inclusion
of the @key attribute to the newly proposed access element
l).  In that posting, I specifically requested the authors/editors to
consider *NOT* including this attribute within the spec, as it leaves
open the continued possibility of key binding conflict.

A recent review of outstanding issues at the HTML Working Group XHTML 2
Issue Tracking System (http://hades.mn.aptest.com/cgi-bin/xhtml2-issues)
leaves me with the impression that this issue has been resolved, yet I
cannot find the "solution" anywhere.

I do recall some discussion of a priority system being established,
where end user choice over-rode author choice, followed by user-agent
choice over-riding author choice, and then finally allowing author
choice to be exposed, but this "cascade" does not appear to be publicly
published anywhere.

Given that the issue seems to be resolved (at least to the editors
satisfaction), may I formally request what the decision/resolution
is/will be?  Is this resolution publicly available?

Thank you in advance.
