"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 ..."

Avneesh: This is just one example.
Ivan has repeated this line for ARIA, WAI etc.
So, it is at multiple places in charter for multiple groups.

With regards
Avneesh

Works for me as wll.  How about this?


New text for scope statement:

The Working Group will identify any accessibility requirements for its 
deliverables betond previously existing WCAG, UAAG, and other requirements 
of the W3C. These will be identified as conformance requirements in the 
Working Group’s normative specifications. Profiles of Web Publications may 
be defined with more stringent accessibility requirements.

And following is the text in coordination section:

The Digital Publishing Working Group will coordinate with Working Groups 
focusing on accessibility to integrate accessibility requirements created as 
part of its recommendation-track deliverables into generalized technology. 
One or more pipeline of the requirements will be maintained to manage 
diverse turnaround times of the W3C groups.
