Re: Updated "Inaccessibility of CAPTCHA" draft published for wide review

Hi, Sam:

Thank you for your help with our document. We appreciate the issues
you've already filed, and we particularly welcome your assistance in
obtaining a Security & Privacy horizontal review for this publication.
We have become increasingly aware of a need to consult W3C expertise in
authentication and privacy, especially as we've also received comments
asking us to say more about biometric developments, e.g.

One aspect we're attempting to delineate as clearly as we can is the
difference between identifying a specific user vis a vis identifying
only that the
user is human and not a robot. This seems to be still insufficiently
clear given the above comment as well as your comment:

We would particularly welcome help getting these issues properly
untangled as these matters are not within our core competencies.

Lastly, I apologize that you were not made directly aware of our
progress. However, we are not rushing to finalize this document even
though the current comment period ends this Friday. Among other issues
we also see a need for I18N review, and we have not ruled out another
public draft.

I look forward to working with you to make this document a compelling
W3C Note,
