Re: Need Clarification on #170

We had hoped to get to this, but with all of the other proposals no one moved this one forward so it didn’t get adopted. We have ideas that were raised well before this one, but if the WG wasn’t able to agree that it was ready to move into the editor’s draft by August 22 then they were not able to get into WCAG 2.1.

    Dear Andrew and Joshue,
    There was a proposed SC which was presented on 23 Mar 2017. I happend
    to find this #170 a few weeks ago.
    New SC proposal: Harmonization with other newer specifications #170

    This proposal was not accepted. I'd like to confirm the reason.
    The reason was desribed on GitHub saying that "it hasn't been adopted
    by the Working Group in time for the August 22 deadline for new SC in
    WCAG 2.1 so we are deferring it for consideration in future releases."
    This explanation is not acceptable because he made the proposal in
    March. It means the working group had six months. Was it simply due to
    the schedule?
    I think that the working group should explain the reason why the
    proposed SC was not adopted in more detail so that he can understand
    it. He didn't satisfied with the response from the working group and
    still remains unconvinced.
    Could you please clarify the reason for him? Thank you in advance for your time.
    Best regards,
