Thanks Michael. Some initial thoughts..

Can we drop the number references? The AG will have a different name, 
and will (in all likelyhood) consist of different content to any 
individual set of guidelines that has preceeded it. Referring to it as 
AG 3.0 seems confusing at best, misleading at worst.

I don't understand the following clause from the "Scope" section:
"Propose options of plans to update the Accessibility Guidlines WG and 
choose an option;"

Much of the draft statement is predicated on the assumption that the AG 
will be an evolution and/or update of existing guidelines. The remit of 
the TF is to follow a user research driven methodology however, which 
may mean that the AG are revolutionary rather than evolutionary. It 
would be good to clarify whether there is a constraint on what AG 
may/may not be, or whether it really will be based on the proposed 

A minimum of 8 hours/week participation is a huge ask of most member 
organisations. I realise there is a lot of work to do, but speaking as a 
member organisation that supports two active participants in the TF 
(plus another in the AG WG), I have to ask if this is a realistic 
benchmark to set?
