Hi Dave,

Thanks for the links to the documents and paper, very interesting work!

I would propose to expand the scope of section 2.5 to "Accessibility and
Internationalization Use Cases", and add 2.5.3 with your P10 example from
the paper.  Would that be sufficient, or do you have time to write up a
more detailed use case for the document?

Thanks again,
