Integration of HTM

Ian, others,

We are working on canvas accessibility for the shadow DOM and I am working
with the Mozilla team on the shadow DOM approach with some sample code from

As we discussed, the use of media query of alternative content I am working
to pull over a standard set of attributes from the IMS Access For All
specification. It was suggested that we preface these with an aria-,
however these are not part of the aria specification and preceding these
with an aria- dash would not give credit to the IMS Access For All effort.

I raised the suggestion that these be preceded with afa- but we agreed this
would require agreement from the working group.

For example, one attribute would be AdaptationType and we would define an
equivalent CSS Media query property for it.

What's the group on using afa- to preamble each attribute name? ... or
should we just include the attributes without the afa-?

As was requested they would not be limited to canvas content selection and
at the moment I see no naming conflicts with existing HTML 5 attributes.
