Error in response to PDF3 public comment

I made a mistake in my response to the comment on PDF3.  The mistake was in agreeing that VoiceOver wasn’t able to access the tag information in a PDF document. Adobe Acrobat on the Mac does use the tags to populate the accessibility API (there was a time where this wasn’t true, but it is now), so I have updated the response.

The updated response: https://github.com/w3c/wcag/issues/220#issuecomment-237994051

Any thoughts?  If this sounds ok to people then we will re-circulate the CfC.
