Hi John,

Thanks for the review, I’ve made updates, some comments/replies also:

1)  … HOWEVER both ways still use the @autocomplete attribute (only).
Good point, I got confused on that. It feels like there should be one for true/false, and one for the value, but never mind!


2)  "... although it isn’t very helpful for personalisation..."

[JF] I STRONGLY reject that assertion (as did Jon Avila<https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2018JanMar/1328.html>).

AC: That was from my email, which was describing the comments from the call last week (and not what I said in the understanding doc).

Whilst the attribute could be used as a basis for adding icons, what I mean (in the doc) is that the scope is not very wide. I.e. of all the attributes / purposes we could add, this is a small sub-set.

The second paragraph of the understanding talks about personalisation and being future-compatible. However, any suggestion that this would be the basis or reason for adding personalisation is likely to run into issues – it isn’t enough to justify it.

3) Metadata tokens

I’ll add a link to the semantics spec in the 2nd paragraph.

4) Housekeeping

Yea, I don’t find the non-hyphenated one as readable, but I think the US spelling aspect will win there.
