Subject:	ARIA Agendum Request: Question regarding the ongoing status of
            ARIA  in HTML


May we have a brief agendum on the various ARIA calls this week
regarding the below?

Here's the question ...

Are we content to leave this work to the HTML-WG with only the usual
level of PF pre-publication scrutiny? Or, would we prefer the document
be a joint deliverable, whereby we would maintain advance sign-off on

The CfC which follows was issued by the HTML-WG last week while many of
you were at CSUN. I have raised concerns:

Now that PF's W3C work is resuming following CSUN, I would like to get a
sense from the several ARIA subteams of what our wg position going
forward should be.



PS: Discussion of this CfC and the proposal to move it forward can be
found on this month's HTML-Admin email list:
