A preliminary proposal will be posted to the PF's portion of the ESW wiki by the 2008-07-23 PF teleconference and announced to the w3c-wai-pf list. A consistent approach to HTML5's media specific elements is outlined (all are containers, all are capable of content-negotiation), which can also serve as a model for CANVAS accessibility. in addition, a proposed mapping of IMG to FIGURE, and @alt and @longdesc to FIGURE child elements is also addressed.
