In the spirit of trying to reduce the extra weight of the new standards,
I'll raise my question again -- why is language support in 508? We do
have other WCAG standards that we have not included, and this seems like
it is not needed in the U.S. standard.
What is our rationale for requiring the language support in content
formats and web and software provisions?
