Any member of either the PFWG or the HTML WG may participate in the HTML Accessibility Task Force. However, all HTML Accessibility Task Force participants must become members of the HTML WG and accept the W3C's Patent Policy for the HTML WG as HTML WG members. Any work the Task Force may perform to accomodate WAI-ARIA within HTML 5 is thus covered.
