Dear WG,

Here is another issue that needs to be introduced here for discussion,  
as it will be added to the issue-tracker in time. It has had some  
peripheral discussion on the list, but has never been formalized into  
an issue. This issue has been discussed at length on the list, but  
across many different threads and many wiki pages. I have tried to  
distill the topic into one wiki discussion page that has concepts and  
norms that should ideally get added into the draft. The goal in this  
initial draft is to layout the various UI repertoire available to  
general purpose interactive UAs. Second to specify some minimum  
guidelines that UAs should meet for providing users access to  
important document data. Finally, I tried to steer clear of requiring  
specific UI behaviors other than the specification of a basic and  
optional advanced inspector.

UAs should provide rich UI to access document data (title, href, cite,  
longdesc, aria-describedby, alt, ).[1]

Take care,
