Hi Shadi, Eric,

Thanks again for the opportunity to provide feedback on WCAG-EM after 
the original deadline.

Please find attached some feedback from the NZ Government Web Standards 
Group. We hope it helps.

There is generally quite a bit of excitement and appreciation among the 
Group regarding the methodology document, and we look forward to seeing 
it proceed to the next stage in the process.

If you have any questions about the feedback, please let me know.

Best regards,

Jason
