List, I agree with Katie's comments.  This is how I envisioned the extensions also.

1)    TPAC final call

2)    Extension model discussion:

Including the sub topics:

Background pointers
What type of extensions? KHS: Mobile (Web/Hybrid/Native), Cognitive, Low Vision, Wearable

Will extensions be A, AA, AAA? 
KHS: I would prefer to see a larger amount of content fall under A and AA, so that governments can implement under current and future law.

Will extensions conform to WCAG requirements for success criteria? 
KHS: Maybe, but I am assuming the extensions themselves will in fact have their own SC - that are a required adjunct to WCAG2 if/when adopted. In other words WCAG 2 is the baseline.

Categorisation of current open issues in the context of the extension model.

KHS: Absolutely. What quickly comes to mind is enhancement of visual focus being improved, as well as text and content resize - both under the Low Vision Extension.

3) WCAG working group and public engagement/interaction
