Regarding item in subject, I suggest to refer at now to the most stable
document published, so to the ISO TS 16071:2003 - the last document
available to the public

This will guarantee us to not refer to unstable document that could also
in future change - and change also as reference (proposal about to
integrate it in the 9241-xxx group of ISO).

Btw, seems that since today I'm become Working Group Expert of ISO/TC
159/SC 4/WG 5 'Software ergonomics and human-computer dialogues' so I
could - with ISO WG authorization - keep the ATAG WG informed about new

. Finalize reference to ISO16071

JT: Need to review what Roberto has posted. Note that ISO is not stable.
Will be ready in 2006.

TB: is it appropriate to refer to the "stable" spec?

JT: Now have access to all docs as a Canadian rep. to this project.
JR: Can send relevant docs to me to go through for our references.
TB: Has decision about appropriateness of referencing ISO16071 been
JR: Yes, it is OK, but there are other issues such as: is it OK to have
spec and then point to another for its conformance details (the WCAG
references)? Should we instead bring the WCAG refs. back into ATAG, and
release new ATAGs (2.1, 2.2, etc.) each time a new WCAG comes out.

TB: ISO defines levels, but doesn't mention conformance. The "impact
category" can be replaced. One can list a number of guidelines and any
jurisdiction or country can then categorize in different ways for their
JT: We can say "this is the ATAG category" for the impact category.
TB: So ATAG is equal to a country - an "application profile."
JT: The present form of ISO 16071 is in committe draft (CD) at present.
We'll find out when it is stable and figure out status.
