A question about the mini-requirements document for "Retrofitting Web Sites 
for Accessibility"
[http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/retrofit/retrofitting-changelog.html]

The mini-requirement statement in the Changelog doesn't indicate a purpose 
for the resource. Is this because a first draft of the actual document 
already exists and the purpose is explained there?

Also, I tend to agree with Sailesh's comment (on the list) that 
developers/programmers are, or need to be in, the primary audience - at 
least, in the real world. However, the way the draft presents the steps - 
starting way back at the "Developing Organizational Policies" stage, and 
only has the actual retrofitting work come in at Step 4, it certainly seems 
like this document is being targeted at a higher organizational level than 
the people who are actually going to do the work.

Maybe the title is misleading.  Or maybe there is too much overlap with the 
other suites.

I don't have any concrete suggestions for a solution. (Sorry!)
