Here is a last call comment from Phill Jenkins (pjenkins@us.ibm.com) 
on QA Framework : Operational Guidelines (and Examples and Techniques)
received by the LC form system.

Comment title: Checklist format issue 

[Entered into form by LH.  Comment applies to Checklists of SpecGL and TestGL as well OpsGL.]

I have noticed a number of "checklists" being proliferated on the W3C
pages.  I have a strong recommendation for improving the adaptability of
the checklist format - namely the number of column in the layout.  For
example, today most have a column for the number of the checkpoint, the
description of the checkpoint, and then a number of columns for YES, NO,
N/A.  Please consider adapting the following format:

Top matter:
      Version, date, owner, etc
Column 1 10% Checkpoint number
Column 2 40% Description
Column 3 10% YES, NO, N/A, Planned
Column 4 40% Comments
Bottom matter:
      Footnotes, exceptions, references, etc.

an example we find useful is at

[[Following is (unarchived) comment from Ian Jacobs:

We redesigned the UAAG 1.0 checklist [1] based on 
earlier comments from you [1]. 

We don't specify fixed widths for table columns.
