The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Call for Review:
Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group Charter' (Advisory
Committee) for Mozilla Foundation by David Baron.

The reviewer's organization suggests changes to this Charter, but supports
the proposal whether or not the changes are adopted.

Additional comments about the proposal:
We support the work in this charter.

We suggest that both:
 * the first toplevel bullet point in the scope section
 * the second bullet point in the success criteria section
be more explicitly open about working with non-W3C groups, since I
think there may be productive opportunities for such interaction,
such as with the WHATWG.

This is also the first time I'm seeing the work on Personalization
Semantics.  I wonder whether it's a good idea for this work to have its
naming such that it's essentially limited to accessibility, since many
of the semantics being defined seem more generally useful for cases
beyond accessibility (e.g., they'd be very helpful for autofill).  I
wonder if many of these should be more general additions to the markup
languages being extended rather than accessibility-specific attributes
(at least based on what I think the naming is suggesting).

I think the "Success Criteria" of the charter already seems to be open
to this possibility, but I'd suggest:

 * revising the "Scope" section, third bullet, first sub-bullet, to
   change "new specifications" to "new specifications or additions to
   existing specifications"

 * making the description of the Personalization Semantics Content
   Module in the Deliverables section more open to having some of the
   module incorporated into other specifications instead of being its
   own specification
