Re: an intro to WAI-ARIA Suite ?

It's important to reach out to end users and campaign to build demand 
for implementation. This is important to push for implementation from a 
certain major browser vendor.

An outreach document is needed to do this, even with the recommendation 
being a draft. On reading the press release I thought it didn't explain 
very clearly what this technology means for non-visual users. The 
roadmap explains the concepts but only after reading through some very 
heavy-going technical details. Some real use cases could be the starting 
point for some kind of marketing brochure that skips over the technical 
implementation details and shows what the benefits are for the end user.
