Two weeks ago, John replied to Ted regarding Ted's proposed text. It
was on the same day that Ted proposed it: June 29, 2012. John's
response is at:

Paul, I think that John's  third to the last paragraph is key to this
situation: "we've come to a crossroads". *

Janina said in last week's HTML WG teleconference:

So it seems that the ball is in Ted and  Jonas' court.

Ted and Jonas, can you live with John's V4 CP?
If not can you while taking into consideration John's June 29th reply,
propose text for the details section of the V4 proposal that that you
could live with? Like John, I too am hoping for a positive response.


Best Regards,

the Accessibility Task Force for their endorsement of the V4 CP and
