Dear Paul, All:

Certainly. Let me start with the request for more time to respond on
this CfC.

As I noted in the above referenced email, most of PF was otherwise
engaged last week in the annual (CSUN) "Technology and Persons with
Disabilities Conference. In particular we did very little PF business.
All our several weekly teleconference calls last week were cancelled.

For PF the week of the CSUN conference is very much like TPAC week for
W3C. The inperson activities take most of our attention.

PF is resuming its regular W3C work today. I have requested that the
several ARIA subteams consider this CfC:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-pfwg/2015Mar/0008.html

Second, I would like to agree with the criticism that making this
document a joint deliverable would encumber the process. However, I
believe we can reduce that encumbrance in half. My proposal is to allow
concurrent CfCs where our several joint deliverables are involved, as
well as any other consensus questions where our groups must agree:

Lastly for now, let me note that ARIA continues in active development.
We are actively working on a next revision to the ARIA specification; we
are providing explicit user agent mappings guidance; and we are
actively developing authoring guidance. I believe we would all agree
that we should take the trouble to ascertain that our various
publications all agree--that we aren't saying something in one place,
and something somewhat different somewhere else. I believe this is our
joint interest in the quality of our work.

I believe it's also a good part of the reason why every other document
that directly concerns topic of mutual interest between PF and HTML-WG
is perforce a joint deliverable. Where ARIA in HTML to proceed as an
HTML-WG document alone, it would form the sole exception to the
established process.

In summary I believe we need to continue to rely on the HTML-A11Y Task
Force as the vehicle for assuring the smoothest possible interaction
between our two WGs.
