    This is a request from the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities (COGA) Task

    This CfC seeks consensus to split the existing COGA Gap Analysis Working Draft
    publication into two separate note-track documents.

    As work on the existing Gap Analysis document has progressed, what began as an
    Appendix has grown in import and size to the extent that COGA now believes our
    target audience for these documents is better served by two separate documents
    rather than a single document. That is the basis for this CfC.

    If this Call for Consensus fails, no change will result.

    If the Call for Consensus is approved:

    1. The existing COGA Gap Analysis document will be split into two separate note track documents as follows:

    - Gap Analysis

    - A First Public Working Draft (FPWD) of "Making content usable for people with cognitive and learning disabilities" will be authorized:

    2. Standing permission for COGA to publish updated working drafts will be authorized for both documents.

    Please note that there is a 'Design Themes' section in the new document which
    has links to a third document. There is still discussion about the name and
    optimal disposition of that third document. Whether or not it eventually
    becomes an additional note track document is not part of this CfC.


    This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of support
    via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though messages of support
    are certainly welcome.

    If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
    proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later than 23:59 (Midnight)
    Boston Time, Tuesday 4 December.

    IMPORTANT: If you are a member of both AG and APA you should vote on both CfCs. AG and APA need to determine whether a consensus exists independently of each other.

    Thanking you for your attention on this question,
