Consider this then a formal response - I raise my hand to assist in
whatever way I might.  While I agree that the discussion of codec should
not have any impact on the accessibility framework, it appears that this
is not the case: the Working Group is grappling with codec questions and
accessibility is receiving zero attention.

I would welcome further discussions with you either via this forum or off
line on how I might assist in this important issue.
