aloha, ian!

checkpoint 10.6, as prosed by me [1], amended by Len Kasday [2], and adopted by
the WG during the 25 August telecon [3], should read:

10.6 Prompt the user to confirm any form submission not explicitly activated by
the user. [Priority 2] 

and not, as it appears in the 27 August draft [4] 

10.6 Prompt the user to confirm any form submission not explicitly initiated by
the user. [Priority 2] 

a one word difference, admittedly, but a significant one, i believe...

i also am uncertain about the status of the second proposed checkpoint, which
addresses event handled forms, contained in the post archived at (long URI

has it been dropped, or merely subsumed into 10.6?

could, therefore,  discussion of (or at least a vote on) the second proposed
checkpoint for GL10

If the submission of a form is achieved via a script or an event handler,
prompt the user for confirmation before submitting the form content. [Priority
* NOTE: This checkpoint is intended to extend the user's control over automated
submission mechanisms, such as the HTML4 event handler "onchange"
* Refer also to Checkpoint 5.8 

be added to the agenda for the 1 September telecon?


PS: the proposal for the additional checkpoint for GL10 contains proposed
techniques, as well
