1. Proposal for 2.1.5. Implementation Document

Simon's proposal of 2.1.5

If a User Agent keeps an internal representation of the user content in terms of: element structure; relationships between elements; element meaning; or some combination thereof, it must expose this internal representation via an appropriate means (normally by using the platform accessibility architecture or a programmatically available DOM) (level A).

INTENTION

To overcome possible problems related to decentralized-extensibility.

Responder Proposal for 2.1.5. Implementation DocumentComments 2.1.5
Simon Harper Accept the proposal
Greg Lowney Accept the proposal I'm happy with the success criterion, but the Intent section should eventually be expanded quite a bit. Remember that the term "decentralized-extensibility" won't be familiar or obvious to most readers.
Kimberly Patch Accept the proposal Wordsmithing:
remove colon, replace semicolons with commas
Kelly Ford Neutral - will accept the consensus of the group

2. Proposal for 3.12.3 Provide alternative views

Simon's proposal of 3.12.3

3.12.3 Presentational Grouping: A hierarchical view of the rendered content is provided, as opposed to the more normal view of the underlying mark-up or DOM. In this case if elements are physically or hierarchically close within the rendered presentation but are distant with the underlying mark-up or DOM, ie the logical structure and semantics are implied by the presentation or styling (such as by using CSS absolute positioning etc), access to the authors implied presentational groups will be available. (Level A.)

Simon Harper Accept the proposal
Greg Lowney Recommend changes (see comments field) It's still a pretty complex paragraph, and "as opposed to the more normal view" implies that this user agent's normal view of this type of data is not already hierarchical. Assuming I'm interpreting it correctly, how about simplifying it along the lines of:

The user has the ability to be presented with a hierarchical view of the rendered content that conveys associations implied by author-specified presentation attributes such as position and appearance.

Intent:
* Sometimes authors will visually convey relationships between elements by spatially grouping them, by giving them the same coloration or background, and so forth. Users may not be able to perceive those attributes, such as when using a screen reader, or when strong magnification makes it difficult to make a mental model of the screen layout. In those cases the user agent can assist by providing a view of the data that groups elements that that user agent perceives as implying relationships.

It still needs some good examples.
