I had one action to add an editor's note to the distraction section,
switch I have done, have pushed the change, and created the following pull
request <https://github.com/w3c/personalization-semantics/pull/195>.

The added text is as follows (if anyone cannot live with this please advise
and I can make any required edit):

EDITOR'S NOTE: The distraction attribute may appear to have some common
features with the CSS prefers-reduced-motion media feature, however there
are some significant differences:

   - the distraction attribute is applying semantics at the element level,
   whereas the CSS media feature is presentational and semantics-free.

   - the CSS prefers-reduced-motion media feature requires that the content
   author also provide an alternative experience for users who have the
   Reduced Motion option enabled - the distraction attribute does not.

   - the CSS prefers-reduced-motion media feature anticipates a reduced
   presentation, the distraction attributes anticipates that the content can
   be minimize, re-ordered or even turned off (hidden) from the end user.

<end of note>

I'll also note that, after going back and looking more closely at Module
One, the section Labeled Terms
<https://w3c.github.io/personalization-semantics/content/index.html#terms> is
actually already referencing the COGA Glossary at
https://www.w3.org/TR/coga-usable/#glossary (The Making Content Usable for
People with Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Note) - so I think the
conversation from today is moot. Thoughts?
