     * Summary of Action Items

   <scribe> scribe: janina

   steve: plan was to go through aria mapping tables--not done
   ... had a medical emergency--sorry
   ... also had to get our alt doc ready for html heartbeat publication this week

   cyns: table or tr as toolbar

   rich: ah, yes

   cyns: it's the shrinking behavior

   cyns which is hard with css

   steve: seems we need to specify the allowable roles, seems button wouldn't fit

   cyns: think structural elements should be overwritable by any
   ... i think of a table cell as similar to a paragraph

   steve: i'm trying to find the taxonomy logic for all these mappings

   michael: isn't there a contextual issue? if we overwrite a td, what about the parent

   cyns: we need some best practices on how to turn table into a toolbar ...

change proposal http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Jun/0099.html and

   steve: seems to be a counterproposal to my proposal

   cyns: about issue 85

   rich: one can't enforce authors doing stupid stuff

   <Stevef> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Jun/0108.html

   cyns: we've our proposal, ian has his, what's the procedure

   steve: his is basically 'don't allow links to be buttons'

   <Stevef> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9871 and http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9872

   cyns: his proposal is incomplete, misrepresents our proposal

   steve: thought it worthwhile bringing it to our attention as it's a counterproposal to ours

   cyns: worried this proposal attacks aria architecture, says it shouldn't be used for the purpose it was designed for
