Well ... I was really just being tongue-in-cheek about inviting
Joe Clark, but yes, I do think WCAG 2.0 may be a timely
topic. (Possibly we could have Clark on a "teleconference" style
link though...)

I think it would be good to have a mix of presentation/discussion
on WCAG 2.0 itself (what's new, the comparison with 1.0, the big
issue of defining "baselines" etc.); and also maybe some initial
reactions from developers (on how to design/evaluate against WCAG
2.0) and maybe from NDA (on their attitude to "adoption" or
superceding of WCAG 1.0 - assuming WCAG 2.0 does really get
finalised this time).  Other possibilities might be discussion of
how some specific non-W3C technologies (PDF? Flash?  MS-Office?
OpenDocument?) might be evaluated against WCAG 2.0...

Best - Barry.
