Hi everyone,

Regarding the presentation I gave on our process & WCAG 3.0 document, that presentation is here:
https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1MRuvJ6BcLCPfupvvrwL6GU-KsyWR76Tb/edit#slide=id.p1<https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2Fpresentation%2Fd%2F1MRuvJ6BcLCPfupvvrwL6GU-KsyWR76Tb%2Fedit%23slide%3Did.p1&data=04%7C01%7Cacampbell%40nomensa.com%7C5d9e891b972e4ba6cb4308d98d2101ba%7Cebea4ad6fbbf43bd8449c56e26692c35%7C0%7C0%7C637695995644406401%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=M93cH8vmMLNgQ1FZ9zzFlYbvUiT8IXON%2F2xKyN7nMgM%3D&reserved=0>

The main point of the proposal is to change the expectation that the entire document has consensus and is ‘recommendation ready’.

You could consider the entire current Working Draft (WD) to be ‘exploratory’, but we have internal (and probably external) confusion about the intended maturity level of the document.

The proposal is to apply labels to each section of the documents which indicate the level of maturity, and have a level of review that each section needs to get to for that level.

The official Working Draft would have the more mature content, the Editors Draft would include everything being worked on. Both would have the labels.

Meeting time is rather precious at the moment, we wanted to put this proposal in front of everyone, get some feedback (here) for broader points, and then have a survey/discussion.

Kind regards,

-Alastair
