================================
Response from the Working Group
================================
While your proposed changes might be easier to understand for authors
who are using HTML, these techniques are listed this way to
accommodate the addition of future techniques for providing short text
alternatives for other technologies. We expect to have new techniques
for providing short text alternatives listed in this section for
additional technologies in an upcoming draft of the Techniques
document.
