Hi Michael, 

I spoke with Leonie and she is working on the timeline for us with the editors of the spec. Would you please provide me with the updated timeline that was sent to PLH here so that Leonie can see it?

It is not permitted for a specification to advance to Recommendation while normative dependencies exist on specifications that have not themselves yet advanced to Recommendation. Do we expect this spec will reach Recommendation by the time we want ARIA to (April 2017)? If not we have a problem.

But that's a substantive change, that we would have to agree quickly because the formal transition to CR is scheduled for next week.
