Dear David,

Thanks for moving this process along. As I'd mentioned earlier, I'm
interested in helping with the literature review, especially drawing from
literature and case examples of relevant work outside the field of

Below are some of the questions I'd propose adding to the list, and ones
I'd be interested in contributing to personally:

   - How have guideline development initiatives outside the field of
   accessibility engaged and solicited feedback from all relevant
   stakeholders? What methods have been particularly effective or ineffective?
   - For such initiatives, what have been the key drivers of the timeline
   (whether lag or potential speed efficiencies)?
   - What are the factors that determine effective (i.e. widespread)
   adoption of and compliance with a new set of guidelines?

Hope all is well!
