 From my perspective, to date it has been neither.

   From http://www.w3.org/2010/01/14-html-wg-minutes.html :

     "janina to update A11Y timeline for tracker related issues by jan
      28"

   From http://www.w3.org/2010/01/28-html-wg-minutes.html :

     "haven't yet got specific about timelines"

   From http://www.w3.org/2010/02/04-html-wg-minutes.html :

     "when does the task force intend to bring back specific proposals
      for specific issues?" ... "action-170 due in 2 weeks"

   From http://www.w3.org/2010/02/25-html-wg-minutes.html :

     "action-170 due in one week"

I'll note that the date on that page for Issue 9 is 16th February.

While I don't particularly enjoy being the nag, at this point I do feel 
that some gentle nudging is necessary and appropriate.  If the outcome 
of picking a date for one issue that might be close causes realistic and 
reasonable dates to be picked for all issues, then I am entirely OK with 
that outcome.
