This looks reasonable.
Remember that telecom devices also have application software and platform
software. So those concepts will flow everywhere. If we want to combine
them all we will end up with just one category.
Part of what we will be looking at in the General group will be "what
applies to all". Your thoughts on this are sought. We don't want to
duplicate this discussion but rather refer to it. So you might also think
about what aspects are common and what are specific to a technology area.
Software clearly will be everywhere. And we want harmonization starting
within our own guidelines... (grin).

It is clear that web applications are getting more prevalent. But that does
not necessarily mean we have to merge 1194.21 and 1194.22. Note that the
WCAG 2.0 draft accommodates both web applications and "simple websites". It
would make sense, for the interest of efficiency and harmonization, to
update 1194.22 to handle both web applications and websites. It is obvious
that there will be a lot of parallel between 1194.21 and 1194.22 after we
are done. All I'm trying to say is--attempting such consolidation would be
a lot of work and create harmonization problem.
