The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group of the W3C
hereby formally requests adapt- be designated a reserved prefix in HTML
5. This request follows our in person discussions during the W3C TPAC
recently concluded in Vancouver and logged here:


Following up on our TPAC conversation, the following W3C issue indicates
WHAT's research has indicated the adapt- prefix should be web



1.)	The W3C WAI-Adapt Symbols Module forthcoming Candidate Recommendation draft
will utilize adapt- and can be viewed here:


2.)	The above specification relies on a forthcoming W3C Registry
specification which will publish shortly as a First Public Working Draft
(FPWD). The registry specification provides a mapping between thousands
of concepts expressed in common written language using a industry
accepted index value to identify the user's understood AAC symbol, as
there are multiple, non mutually comprehendable symbol sets in use.


For the very first time in web technology,  these two W3C
specifications will together provide the mechanism for a single, internationally supported  numeric attribute value
to support AAC symbols that individual users can comprehend because the
displayed AAC symbol will come from the symbol set into which they've
been educated.
