Did we actually agree to that?  Or did we just say that we'd consider 
it?   I wasn't present Friday at Boston, and the minutes are vague about 
whether we actually agreed to do something or not.

This does not feel smart to me, adding a potentially controversial section 
of new stuff after Last Call, when we're considering going to PR.  Yes, it 
would be non-normative, but still...I feel that we are taking a risk with 
our plans and schedule.

How about this idea instead, as a compromise ... invite WAI to write some 
sort of document about quality & accessibility, and maintain it in their 
Web space, and promise a reference and link to it from SpecGL?
