I am fine with this text. It's longer than I thought Ivan wanted it to
be,  but if he thinks it's aan acceptable length I think it's relatively
clear while also being explicit  about the fact that we will incorporate
accessibility requirements in any recommendation-track deliverables,,
and the fact that we will be coordinating with other groups.

My only issue  is the following:

"The Digital Publishing Working Group will coordinate with the WCAG Working
Group to integrate accessibility requirements created as part of its
recommendation-track deliverables into generalized technology."

I don't think we should be limiting ourselves to coordinating with WCAG.
I would prefer  "will coordinate with the WCAG Working Group, as well as
any other  working groups as needed, to integrate ..."
