Hi gang,

Gregg and I attended the WCAG WG meeting today, and discussed the survey 
of "WCAG2ICT Issues for 14th May 2013 
Here's a summary of the results, in survey-item order:

  * *"Definition of STRUCTURE - (and its use in 1.3.1)"*

    There was general agreement that the second sentence of the glossary
    term definition "structure" shouldn't have been in WCAG.  The plan
    is for a formal survey for next week adding removal of that sentence
    to the WCAG 2.0 editorial errata
    <http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/errata/#editorial>, since there is
    never any use of "collection of web page structure" (the only
    reference to that term is in 1.3.1 which only speaks to the
    structure content of a single web page).  Once this is done,
    WCAG2ICT will simply do our usual "web page" language substitution
    to the amended/errata-ed definition of "structure".  That is to say,
    we will reproduce the UPDATED text for "structure" once the errata
    has been applied to it, showing just the one sentence "way the parts
    of aWeb page <http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG/#webpagedef>are organized in
    relation to each other"

  * *"Text for Guideline 3.2 Predictable: Make Web pages appear and
    operate in predictable ways."*

    Approved as proposed.

  * *"Text for Principle 4: Robust - Content must be robust enough that
    it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents,
    including assistive technologies." *and the closely related *"Text
    for Guideline 4.1 Compatible: Maximize compatibility with current
    and future user agents, including assistive technologies."*

    Approved as proposed, with the proviso that WCAG2ICT provide a
    WCAG2ICT definition of the term/phrase "accessibility services of
    software and assistive technology".  For tracking purposes, I was
    (or should have been...) assigned the AI to do this within WCAG WG.

  * *"Proposed Command Line text"*

    Approved as proposed.

  * *"SC 1.2.1 - we are removing "conforming alternate version""*

    Approved as proposed.

  * *"Removing reference to (non-existent) conformance section -- and
    cleanup of substitution misses"*

    Approved as proposed, with the proviso that WCAG2ICT provide a
    paragraph in the introduction noting our treatment of conformance &
    pointing to that text.  We are still working out our conformance,
    and I believe Judy Brewer said she planned to address this in the
    introduction text she was reworking. For tracking purposes, I was
    (or should have been...) assigned the AI to do this within WCAG WG.

  * "WCAG2ICT guidance for viewport definition""

    Approved, including an editorial change: we missed the second
    replacement of "user agent" with "software".

Both the master "Edits for Michael to make, post 2nd public draft 
tracking page in our wiki, and the specific pages linked from that 
master, have been updated with these results, courtesy your friendly 
neighborhood janitor.

Note that we failed to bring a few items to WCAG WG that were in fact 
ready to go to them (two of our "Glossary edits post 2nd public draft 
"changes of context" and the actual proposed substitution text for 
"structure", and the generic/formulaic replacements in "Text for 
Principals and Guidelines 
The states of these is also noted in our tracking wiki pages, and Gregg 
has the AI to put these and anything else we generate this week into a 
new survey for WCAG WG by COB this Friday.
