HI Lisa,

> I feel quite strongly that we do not want to miss any educational opportunities for promoting better.

I agree with the aim, but it needs to be balanced with the purpose of the Understanding docs:
To explain that specific success criteria.

Also, remember we have the AAA level ‘identify purpose’ to talk about personalisation and hang techniques from (if that’s needed for advisory techniques?).

If a developer sits down to add the autocomplete metadata and asks “how do I see what this does?”, we don’t have an answer for personalisation yet (i.e. we don’t have 2 current user agents that add icons based on autocomplete metadata).

We should do in future, and as the understanding docs are not on the TR track, we can update it quickly then.

People tend to use these documents as reference material when looking something up, it isn’t a good place to include wider educational material. However, we should link to that material, e.g. the COGA friendly content and applications doc.

I’m not saying that it should not mention personalisation, but the current understanding doc *only* talks about personalisation, which is confusing anyone coming to the SC now.

I went through all the benefits and resources to retain those which still apply with this SC text, but it wasn’t a very long list.

We should add more, I just wanted to create a draft that focuses on the new SC text as a new starting point.

Kind regards,

-Alastair
