Hi Michael,

Thank you for considering using a different list for a non-technical 
issue like the one below. However, since this comment relates to the 
WCAG 2.0 Last Call Working Draft, it should go through the WCAG WG 
commenting process (mailing list already included in this response).

Greetings,
   Shadi
