EOWG,

Draft of EOWG's comments on WAI-ARIA are now available at:
   http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/comments/wai-aria-2009-04

New comments are under headings "Additional comments..." and marked with "NEEDS EOWG REVIEW" (in red), which are mostly under:
   http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/comments/wai-aria-2009-04#newapril

Some of these need refinement, especially the section at:
   http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/comments/wai-aria-2009-04#terms

Please send suggestion to the list before the meeting, so that we can complete it during the teleconference.

Thanks,
~Shawn
