I agree with bill 100%. The goal is to define roles that are relevant to
the web project lifecycle (design, dev, qa, etc.), and have a role to play
with integrating accessibility in that process. Nothing more, which is why
a lot of the roles from that other document just aren’t relevant to what
we’re up to (though still important for other types of considerations).

The type of feedback we’re interested in at this time is about whether
we’ve grossly missed something, if our catégorisations make sense to people
and if they are comfortable with our definitions of what those roles are
and what those people are expected to be doing as part of the lifecycle.

Other discussions are welcomed, philosophical or not, but our goal is to
remain focused on our end game, which is defining the overarching set of
stakeholders involved in creating a digital product with accessibility in
mind.
