REVIEW - WCAG 2 proposed changes (due by April 29)

The following email outlines the updates proposed and implemented by the WCAG 2 Task Force. It provides a two-week window for Working Group members to review non-normative WCAG 2 updates, and consists of changes in several categories.

Proposed normative change

In addition to the non-normative changes in the sections below, the Task Force has identified a normative or potentially normative change for the Working Group. This is listed here to flag it may initiate a normative review process. It will be added to an upcoming call, and if the attending working group members are in general agreement to make the change, it will be determined if it must go through a CFC process.
