A11y Review Comment Tracker - https://w3c.github.io/horizontal-issue-tracker/?repo=w3c/a11y-review

Should <dir> behave like a list element?

Roy: Related to ARIA wg.

matatk: We had a previous discussion on this.

<matatk> Per our meta-discussion, we decided we don't need to do anything for this one: w3c/a11y-review#161

Consider allowing <hr> within list elements (ol, ul, menu)

<matatk> es

matatk: You have to concat the two messages to build the real URL.

matatk: There is a spec for providing well-known URLs
… with password

<matatk> Well-known URIs: w3c/adapt#231

matatk: Original purpose: Let your password manager update your password
… Can be used for a11y purposes as well.
… A user might not be able to navigate the page for changing the password, but could still use this URL.

janina: IETF has a spec for well-known URIs, and a registry for them.
… Came out of WAI coordination group.
