Colleagues:

I have concluded editing our draft CAPTCHA document for the time being.
Yes, I have made significant and numerous edits since our call.  So, at
your convenience, please review:

https://rawgit.com/w3c/apa/captcha-janina/captcha/index.html

In addition to any further edits we may want to make, we still have
broken links to resolve.

I now have a working URI for the Cnet article reference--and it's an
even more meaningful reference in the current draft, imo.

While the specific Anti-Phishing PDF document the 2004 CAPTCHA note
references now yields a 404, the site itself is still functioning. Is
there some specific document there we would choose to point to in our
current note?

Lastly, I have collect terms we may want to include in a glossary. Your
opinions on which to keep, and where to point to in reference to them
are solicited. Here's my current list:
