Gregg,
The working group proposed a response to this comment (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-comments-wcag20/2015Jan/0009.html).

The comment makes it clear that as this is normative text we are not making a change at this time, but offers a clarification to assist the JIS committee in reviewing their translation.

<proposed comment>

Thank you for your request. This content is in the Normative glossary and cannot be changed, however we can add a request for clarification of the wording to out "future tasks".

In an effort to help clarify the wording for the purpose of your translation work, the Working Group agreed on this alternate wording for Note 2:

Note 2:
A transition is the change from a maximum relative luminance value to a minimum relative luminance value (or minimum to maximum). A flash consists of two opposing transitions.
</proposed comment>

You can see the discussion on the development of this proposal at https://github.com/w3c/wcag/issues/69

As you were involved in crafting this language, do you feel that this captures the meaning of the official WCAG 2.0 language?

Original text is:
Note 2: A transition is the change in relative luminance (or relative luminance/color for red flashing) between adjacent peaks and valleys in a plot of relative luminance (or relative luminance/color for red flashing) measurement against time. A flash consists of two opposing transitions.

Thanks,
AWK
