Response from the Working Group
================================
We think documenting techniques from PDF/UA is a useful approach.  Please
do submit such techniques for consideration.  We have a form at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/TECHS-SUBMIT/ that you can fill out that
will guide you in creating technique with all the necessary parts.  We are
accepting techniques in this fashion and using them to expand the
techniques document.   You may also want to consult the guidelines for
writing techniques at http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Technique_Instructionsand
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Technique_Template. We look forward to
reviewing them.
