Hi Sam,

I don't see a question for a poll stated in this text. It is
background information but not a poll question. If the idea is to
focus on legacy @summary, perhaps something like:

<draft text>

The table summary issue is detailed in the "Mechanism to Summarize a
Table" [1] Wiki page. Suggested steps [2] to resolve this issue have
been suggested by PFWG.

As a first step in finding a solution to this issue, shall the HTML WG
restore the summary attribute to HTML5?

A "yes" response indicates a willingness to provisionally reinstate
@summary into the spec as conforming and not obsolete with discussion
pending for next steps to move forward. It does not constitute
endorsement of PFWG's next steps. It does not mean reinstating
@summary indefinitely but as an interim measure until it is agreed
that a replacement of equal or better functionality works and is in


* Yes
* No
* Concur
* Abstain

</draft text>

My 2 cents.
