I'd prefer not to argue on two different lists at the same time so I'd appreciate if people really interested in this matter would join the WAI GL list where I think the discussion should really happen. mailto:w3c-wai-gl-request?Subject=subscribe (and then you can unsubscribe if you want) Liam, I'm forwarding your message to GL to start a thread there. Thanks.
