Re: ISSUE-204: aria-hidden - Chairs Solicit Alternate Proposals or Counter-Proposals

Dear HTML Chairs, Working Group, A11Y Task Force, and Protocols &
Formats Colleagues:

I would like to draw your attention to two additional Change Proposals
for Issue-204. These two additional proposals resemble each other
closely, but we, the HTML-A11Y Task Force,  have not yet succeeded in
merging them into a single proposal. Nevertheless, as CPs are due today,
I want to bring them both to your attention at this time.

1.)	We have a proposal authored on behalf of WAI Protocols and Formats
WG by Cynthia Shelly:

	Please note that this proposal addresses markup examples, use
	cases, and other concerns which were raised by all the other CPs
	on this Issue of which we're aware.

2.)	We have a Change Proposal based on John Foliot's proposal,
further refined by Laura Carlson at:

Please note that we expect John will be withdrawing his CP in deference
to Laura's.
