Summary of Issue: \"Programmatically Determined\" awkward sentence
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The majority of the 2nd para of \"Programmatically Determined\" seems awkward.

\"This is important because of the continually ... may very well become accessible in the future.\"

Also, it\'s more about the *potential* for being used by AT, and doesn\'t express whether or not AT actually does support it in practice (that\'s for authors to check from known lists of features supported by AT).

Proposed Change:
\"The term determines if content has the *potential* to be recognised and used by user agents / assistive technologies. However, it does not determine whether or not current user agents / AT do actually support and expose this type of content in practice.\"
