In case you haven't noticed, we have a number of people working flat out
trying to find a plan that will succeed.  None of us are pursuing a the
notion of a survey on issue-30 at this time.

As a normal part of the preparation for survey, the chairs pre-review
proposals, and both proposals were found to have issues over which we
believe that there would be sustainable Formal Objections.  We have
discussed this with the chair of the PF WG, the Director of WAI, the
Director of the W3C, and the CEO of the W3C and have come up with a plan
to address this.  This plan provides the opportunity to work out the
differences between the two proposals and integration into the
specification in time for a HTML 5.0 Recommendation in 2014.

We are aware of, and find encouraging, the discussion that is proceeding
in the A11y Task Force, and encourage people to participate in that

If you are unhappy with the actions the chairs are pursuing, you are
welcome to bring it up with the Interaction Domain Leader:
