Other than for the convenience of the committee organization, I just don't
see the value of trying to assign products to categories. As soon as it is
done, companies will find a way to join two types of products or make a
product in one category serve the purposes of another category. It seems
this is just a fools mission. Rather we should be decomposing products into
their components and assigning those components to categories. That way as
new products developed, they can take on the accessibility requirements of
the components that form them. Each category of components then has a set of
elements that can be added to as needed. The individual elements have
accessibility requirements. I think this sort of approach is the only way we
can ever hope to create standards with any sort of longevity.
Maybe I'm missing something.
