Diversity of stakeholders, use cases and personas is a VERY important goal of Silver, and one that the group is very committed to.  The WCAG WG will be approving the stakeholder map, the use cases and personas before they are complete, and the WCAG WG will be receiving regular reports from the group so there should be sufficient controls to insure diversity.

I will say that personally, increasing the diversity of Silver is very important to me, and the major reason that I agreed to the research phase of the project.

Hi Andrew

Are there any controls  in place to make sure the stake holders, use cases and personas are sufficiently diverse? If it only focuses on though who turn up they it runs the risk of not addressing the needs of undeclared disabilities.

All the best
