Right now the task forces will be strong support for making the SCs
ready for First Public Working Draft. The other task is to identify
necessary accommodations that cannot be met by content alone.

In LVTF we relieved the author of responsibility if no UA for the
technology supported the SC. However there were important features
that are only supported by HTML on desktops or laptops. We could not
put these forward without supportive UAs.
