  2. W3C updates (API, 14:16:05)
    1. The accessible name and description computation is likely going to be carved out of the Core mappings document and placed in its own standalone document. (clown, 14:17:31)
    2. this will permit adding to it specific requirement for HTML and SVG. (clown, 14:18:01)

    3. I'm thinking in sth like "Orca users will be delighted to know that Orca is faster and [whataever joanies think I can say] they will be able to read PDF documents" (jjmarin, 14:30:09)
