This comment has met with consensus support within the Protocols and
Formats Working Group. Please accept this as a comment from the Group.

We would, as ever, welcome the chance to discuss this with you if it
is unclear or for any reason it does not strike the CSS Working Group

DOM Final format in CSS:

We were under the impression that the CSS working group took over the 
CSS DOM API from the DOM working group, so this question is directed 
at the CSS working group. What provision is being made in the CSS DOM 
API to acquire the final format css properties. This information is 
used by assistive technologies and in fact is a fulfillment 
requirement of accessibility APIs. It is valuable for platform 
accessibility API implementations to use a standard DOM API to 
accomplish this task. Is the working group providing a standard API 
mechanism for resolving the final format font and color information 
of content without requiring resolving the final format by processing 
the cascaded style from the applied style sheets?
