hmmmm

If AG 3.0  is a combination of   WCAG  UAAG etc.      
it would be general    Web Accessibility Guidelines — wouldn't it?    (  WAG 3.0 ) 

But maybe we should conceive the baby before we name it…

		- no amount of pressure would cause you to consummate a pregnancy at 4 months if you had a choice to go full term
> pressure is good - to keep us on our toes and not lallygagging .  But we should not ship something before it is ready…  and WAG 3.0 needs to be much more than an update to WCAG.   We REALLY need to rethink accessibility to be able to address what is coming or we will be creating improved tubes in a transistor world.
