thanks for taking the first shoot at this!

not reacting to the content just the form: please consider to be as terse as possible. The charter should not be too long and should be balanced among the various requirements. At first glance what you write may simply be too long.

In particular, the charter should not include operative issues like the creation of sub-groups. This is an organizational matter, and it is up to tge WG how, operationally, it should achieve its chartered goals...

All recommendation-track deliverables will contain normative accessibility requirements. General W3C accessibility requirements such as WCAG will be integrated as a matter of course; any extended requirements will delineated as conformance requirements in the Digital Publishing Working Group's normative specifications.
