I agree that the two groups should work together so that the end result would be a set of tests that support the accessibility requirements of the HTML5 specification.

Good suggestion Martin.

Also regarding accessibility testing, at one time Chaals was going to
make some table-headers test cases [2] for ISSUE-20 which is now Bug
7260 "Create testsuite for table headers association" [3].

Should there some type of coordination between the HTML Accessibility
Task Force and the Testing Task Force?
