(11:35:28 AM) MichaelC: propose we say something like "in the future, user agents my have the ability to expose semantics of hidden descriptions" and encourage providing those semantics
16:21:10 [rubys]
Please post suggestioned rewording into the bug report(s) themselves. If we converge to a small number of stable proposals quickly, I would support reopening issue 204 and proceeding directly to survey on those proposals.
16:21:53 [MikeSmith]

16:24:57 [rubys]
... perhaps "LongdescZeroEdit" could be be updated to advocate a new "describedby" (sans "aria-") attribute?
16:25:37 [paulc]
Sam: someone proposed a specific HTML attribute
16:25:45 [paulc]
Janina: I suggested this in the TF meeting.
16:26:47 [paulc]

(11:42:40 AM) MichaelC: plh: it's clear that people here don't want to remove ARIA from HTML
16:33:27 [rubys]
Agreed. The harder question is: can we get people who actively want to make ARIA in HTML to work to provide proposals that they can live with? Not providing a proposal and objecting to all is not a path forward. I'm pleased to see that people have resumed providing suggestions in the form of comments on the existing bugs.

Judy: The FO contains both technical and procedural objections.

Judy: Solving only the technical problems may not be enough.
16:42:01 [paulc]
Judy: The technical discussion need to happen on the ARIA TF.
16:42:10 [mjs]
I just want to note for the record in the minutes that Judy said it's not her or Janina's preferred outcome to make progress on resolving the Formal Objection
16:42:44 [paulc]
Janina: The procedural issues are not about ARIA. 149 without problems and 1 with problems.

16:45:17 [MikeSmith]
fww, I agree with Sam that that the discussion here has been useful
16:45:43 [Judy]
jb: it sounds are though you are actually discussing the FO itself, which is both procedural and technical, and which I don't think is appropriate to discuss here.
16:46:10 [Judy]
...this is not to say that technical progress is not useful, but that this is not the full context of the FO.
16:46:43 [paulc]
Paul: the chairs put the split out ARIA forward since we are under tremendous pressure to unblock ISSUE-30
