>Subject: CfC: Create HTML Accessibility Task Force
>There has been a fair bit of discussion surrounding the HTML
>Accessibility Task Force. There has been some positive response, and
>all objections seem to have been resolved by the latest plan.
>Therefore, the following resolution is proposed:
>** RESOLUTION: The HTML Working Group shall, with the Protocol and
>Formats Working Group, create an HTML Accessibility Task Force to
>advise on HTML accessibility features. **
>If we create this Task Force, any HTML WG member will be free to
>participate, and any PFWG Member will be free to participate by
>joining the HTML Working Group, to be covered by the patent policy.
>The Chairs of the HTML WG and PFWG will appoint facilitators. The Task
>Force will operate according to the principles laid out by Paul in
>Joint PF WG and HTML WG Accessibility Task Force:
>  1. Any HTML WG member can join the Accessibility Task Force (opt in
>  2. Any PF WG member that wants to join the Accessibility TF should
>first join the HTML WG (see item 1).
>  3. Any member of the Accessibility TF MUST be a member of the HTML WG.
>     Note: We may want to figure out how to permit TF members to avoid
>receiving HTML WG email.
>  4. The Accessibility TF will use a separate email list for TF
>discussions (email address TBD).
>  5. The Accessibility TF will have a separate weekly meeting slot
>(day and time TBD).
>  6. The Accessibility TF will not make final decisions about its
>scope, work plan or work products. These decisions will be made by
>HTML WG in cooperation with the PF WG.
>     Note: The HTML WG might decide at some future point in time to
>delegate more responsibility to the Accessibility TF.
>  7. Facilitator(s) of the Accessibility TF will be selected by the
>HTML WG chairs and PF WG chairs.
>  8. The Accessibility TF facilitator(s) will report back to the HTML
>and PF WGs on the work of the TF on a regular basis.
>  9. The first task of the Accessibility TF will be to draft its scope
>and initial work plan.
>If you object to this resolution, please indicate your objection by
>Tuesday, October 6, 2009. If you object, please give a reason. It
>doesn't have to be a very good reason, but it should be a reason that
>you believe in. If there are no objections by the stated date, this
>resolution will become a Working Group Decision by unanimous consent.
>For the HTML WG Chairs,
