Subject: Call for Consensus (CfC): Position on Two WoT Use Cases

This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible Platform
Architectures (APA) Working Group inquiring whether we have APA
consensus to take a WG position with the Web of Things (WoT) Working
Group on two proposed WoT Use Cases in accordance with [1]APA Consensus

Unified Smart Home Control and Status Interface;;sdata=ic1b2uiJY57v%2BGYsn2CpoB5E8QtF6yAuxLK2i4gKBbY%3D&amp;reserved=0

Audiovisual Devices Acting as Smartphone Extensions;;sdata=ctfoFWjMH1pUF4EyGYipGi0G5r%2BoIBMi11JXyRpN2Vg%3D&amp;reserved=0

Because the WoT survey expires Friday 26 June, We have taken a
provisional position on the above two use cases. This CfC will either
confirm or reject that position.

Both the RQTF and APA teleconferences this past week agreed with this
position which simply regards the above two use cases as critical for
accessibility as minuted here:


Therefore the formal question in this CfC per [1]APA Consensus Policy:

Do you agree the above referenced WoT Use Cases are critical for

***Action to Take***

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, Wednesday 1 July.

NOTE: This Call for Consensus is being conducted in accordance with the
APA Decision Policy published at:
