The Chairs will discuss the processing of this request on Monday at our regular weekly Chairs meeting.  Personally I believe this proposal should be dealt with in the same way as the WG is processing the Encrypted Media and Media Services proposals ie as items that will be done separately from the current HTML5 specification(s).  But eventually it will be the HTML WG that will make this decision.

I note as well that the WG is about to discuss a revised charter and I believe that the processing of this proposal can be discussed as part of that discussion.

Hi Mathew,

I am happy to see your proposal reach the HTML working group. Thank you for all of your hard work on it.

Paul, Sam, and Maciej, should Mathew file a bug according to the HTML Working Group Decision Policy to get his proposal in the WG system ASAP?

Mathew the Decision Policy is at:

It would be great to get an adaptive image element in HTML5. I've copied the accessibility task force on this message for their info and input. Judy, you may want to consider putting this on one of our accessibility text team agendas.

Best Regards,
