I'm also not sure that the separate Inclusive Working Groups document is
appropriate to post here, as this is specifically a document designed to
help other W3C task forces work with our task force, and contains
information that would not be relevant to (and should perhaps not be shared
without significant editing) the community group.

@Bradley-Montgomery, Rachael <>, @Lisa Seeman
<> and @Michael Cooper <>: do you have
more insight as to where and how it is best to address Albert's concerns?

I'll wait until Monday evening to post so that there is time for the list
to add thoughts, questions, or concerns.
