Changes not yet in the editors' draft Re: CFC - Advance WCAG 2.1 to Proposed Recommendation

In the CfC to advance to Proposed Recommendation, we said what will be 
published as a PR is the content of the editors' draft. However, changes 
from other open CfCs are not yet incorporated into that, so I wanted to 
clarify what content would be included in the Proposed Recommendation if 
this CfC passes.

If your response on this CfC to transition to PR depends on the outcome 
of one of the CfCs below, please say so in your response to this one, so 
we can take that into consideration.

The Proposed Recommendation would include the content currently in the 
editors' draft 
In addition, it would include the changes from the following diff views 
*if* the relevant CfC for each passes:

  * Add "to" and note in pointer cancellation
  * SC reorganization
  * Introduction changes

By default, if the CfC for one of the above changes does not pass, but 
the CfC to transition to Proposed Recommendation does pass, the Proposed 
Recommendation would still go forward, but without the change from the 
failed CfC. If people express concern on the PR CfC about that, we will 
evaluate the input.
