Colleagues:

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:

https://www.w3.org/2022/09/13-apa-minutes.html#t03

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

https://github.com/w3c/adapt/issues/222

NOTES:

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

https://w3c.github.io/adapt/symbols/

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.

https://w3c.github.io/adapt-registry/

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.
