Comments on "Composite Capability/Preference Profiles (CC/PP): Structure 
and Vocabularies",
W3C Working Draft 15 March 2001 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-CCPP-struct-vocab-20010315/>:

The document appears to be weighted towards device capabilities, rather 
than user needs.

While "user preferences" is in the introduction, there appears to be no 
further mention of it. This could be easily added to complement the Web 
Content Accessibility Guidelines <http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/>.

Without this there is the risk that the CC/PP will make the web less 
usable, by making it more difficult to tailor to the needs of the user. We 
have the opportunity to improve the user interface with mobile devices, as 
well as overcome some of their technical limitations with accessibility 
features <http://www.tomw.net.au/2000/scsp.html>.

pps: Will be talking about accessibility at the Internet Global Summit, 8 
June 2001 in Stockholm, Sweden <http://www.isoc.org/inet2001/>.
