Introducing WCAG 3 Explainer document

To: Silver Task Force <public-silver@w3.org>, AG WG <w3c-wai-gl@w3.org>

We received comments on the WCAG3 First Public Working Draft (FPWD) 
asking to move some of the introductory material to another document and 
make the guidelines more prominent and easier to find.  We have created 
an Explainer document for WCAG3 trying to follow the guidance for 
Explainers set by the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG).

The Explainer content is a direct move of text from the WCAG3 FPWD into 
the Explainer or it is information taken from the WCAG3 Requirements and 
early Silver published reports. It is organized to meet TAG 
recommendations for Explainers.

The Explainer is intended to be a Note. There is no normative content in 
the Explainer.

We would like to publish the Explainer with the WCAG3 heartbeat 
publication in May. It will be on survey next week, but we wanted to 
introduce it.
