I have agreement from the Mozilla accessibility people and the Apple
accessibility people who actually attend the calls and do the work.

  The group has heard your comments. We don't agree with you. I am not
  going to have another email discussion dragged into the weeds like what
  has happened on summary. I think we have had adequate discussion on the
  topic and this will be part of the proposal we go forward with.

  We have agreement from Apple, Microsoft, IBM, and Mozilla and we are
  working on an implementation.

Please note that there is no such thing as "agreement from Mozilla". The
mozilla community is composed of individuals that often differ in opinion.
In matters of web standards we usually don't form an "official mozilla
position" or any thing like that. So while there very well might be people
at mozilla that support this proposal, it is not "agreement from Mozilla".

Personally I have the same reaction as Ian.

I'll also note that Maciej is from Apple and appears not to like this
proposal either. However I don't know what Apples policy is on these

Best Regards,
Jonas Sicking
