Re: SVG2 Accessibility User Agent Implementation Guide

A correction on what I said about how people could join this proposed 
task force. I had said that SVG WG members would not need to join the 
PFWG to participate. However, the proposed model is slightly different 
than what I was expecting. This would be a joint task force to develop 
the specs, and approval of both the SVG and PFWG would be required to 
publish. However, the actual publishing group would be the PFWG, and 
therefore the work would fall under the PFWG IP policy. This would mean 
that people would need to join the PFWG to participate in the task 
force, even if they are primarily there to represent SVG.

Are there any concerns with this approach? It's an extra bit of 
bureaucracy for some, but maintains a more crystal-clear patent 
commitment, so removes one level of risk from the work.
