Subject: Proposal for structure of COGA documents

As we discussed on the call yesterday, I propose we split the document the TF has been working on into two:

1. User Research
2. Gap Analysis

The User Research document would contain research and information about the needs of people with various cognitive and learning disabilities. 
This is the bulk of the material in the current document.

The Gap Analysis would be a separate document, intentionally shorter. It would focus on how technology meets the needs of people with cognitive and learning disabilities, and where technology and guidelines do not address those needs at present. It would reference the User Research document for expanded information but would not replicate that information. This would allow consumers of the Gap Analysis to focus specifically on that content, but find the expanded information easily if they need it.

The User Research document is currently more mature so would be the first one we publish. The Gap Analysis would follow. The titles of these documents is up for grabs, these are just placeholder references.
