Re: Could we add "Persona Quotes" as a standard part of the Understanding Documents for WCAG 2.1?

Thanks, Laura. From the last call, we will be holding off on the 
simplification callouts for now, since they are easy to add later.

I was just relooking at Non-Text Contrast for a different reason, and I 
found that the persona material appearing in the Intent section was pretty 
disruptive to the reading. It didn't fit narratively. I'm concerned with 
dropping them into something that is already edited and designed to flow 
naturally from Intent to other sections.

I thought we were going to put those at in the Benefits section. I would 
advocate that we at least try one there to see if the flow is better.

Hi Michael,

Love your summaries and Alastair's idea of how they might be incorporated.
