Will this be going to a survey, or how do you prefer we provide comments on
this checklist?

Subject:	Review draft of Web Technology Accessibility Guidelines
            checklist



I have a draft of the Web Technology Accessibility Guidelines checklist
that I think is credibly ready for review:


http://w3c.github.io/pfwg/wtag/checklist.html


The structure is a table with several sections for different features
technologies might provide. In each of those is a set of checklist items
spec developers can check against their own technology. There are also
columns for further explanation and references though those are mostly
blank at this point.


I think this is starting to look semi complete. Some review questions I
would ask are:
      Are there any missing sections, i.e., types of issues specs might
      have that impact accessibility?
      Within each section, are there any missing checkpoints?
      Are there checkpoints that aren't relevant to *specifications* (even
      if they're relevant to authors, user agents, etc.)?
      Do checkpoints belong in other sections?
      Is the overall order logical?


I think the wording in this version is more oriented at ourselves, rather
than at people who might actually use this checklist. That is, it uses
accessibility jargon, and needs significant rephrasing to help non
accessibility specialists who would be asked to use this checklist. I think
this version is clear enough for our own review however.


For reference, some other checklists that I'm drawing some ideas from, and
may converge with more down the road:
      https://www.w3.org/International/techniques/developing-specs
      http://gregnorc.github.io/ping-privacy-questions/
      https://www.w3.org/TR/security-privacy-questionnaire/
