I think in principle these 'high level' preferences can be handled by 
the GPII, both in declaring preferences and by the matchmakers which 
choose device settings based on preferences. In practice, work is 
currently on simpler 'sensory' accessibility options - as that is what 
devices currently support. 
I agree with Debra that the Issue paper approach is more more 
accessible and I think this is important work. It seems more an 
'approach' than an issue. What this is doing is defining cognitive 
accessibility preferences. 
I'll discuss this on GPII and see if it is supportable and if anyone 
would like to join us on this..

&gt; Do you think it should be an issue paper and /or done as a sub group?
