Dear Eval TF,

Last Friday the Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) spend some 
time brainstorming potential ideas for naming the Methodology:
  - <http://www.w3.org/2011/10/21-eo-minutes#item02>

One particularly interesting idea was potential use of "web information 
system" or "web-based information system" as opposed to "website". This 
helps overcome the inclarity that "websites" includes web applications, 
mobile sites, intranets, and other types of web-based systems. What do 
people think of the term "web information system" in place of "website"?

This term also lends itself to new sets of title and acronyms. Examples 
raised include:
  - Web-Based Information System Accessibility Evaluation (WISE)
  - Web-Based Information System Accessibility Conformance Evaluation (WISE)
  - Web-Based Information System Accessibility Conformance Evaluation 
Methodology (WISACEM)

Other random brainstorm ideas from EOWG included:
  - Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WACEM)
  - Website Accessibility Review Evaluation (aWARE)
  - Website Accessibility Review (aWARe)
  - Evaluation Quality Accessibility (EQuAl)
  - Accessibility Quality Assurance (AQuA)
  - Quality Accessibility Check (QAC)

Any thoughts or reactions to these brainstorms is welcome too.
