Dear Sub-group,
How about:

The Digital Publishing Working Group will focus on incorporating
accessibility considerations into the Working Group's deliverables. All
recommendation-track deliverables will contain one or more options to meet
normative accessibility requirements. General W3C accessibility requirements
such as WCAG will be integrated as a matter of course; any extended
requirements will be delineated as conformance requirements in the Digital
Publishing Working Group's normative specifications.

The Digital Publishing Working Group will arrange pipelines with appropriate
W3C groups  in order to create a mechanism for the delivery of accessibility
requirements created as part of our recommendation-track deliverables into
the appropriate recommendations for more generalized technology.

Best
George

Deborah,

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...

Thanks

Ivan
