Agreed, and in fact, we need to get the research that the proposal(s) are
based on documented as well so that we make sure we are cutting precisely as
it were, rather than "eye balling it".

So first things first, please add to:

We need this research documented whether or not we consider any proposal(s),
but especially if, and it will be key to deciding what of each proposal is
necessary / based on evidence, and what is merely a recommendation that
seems like a good idea.

In addition, to be sure of the "practical benefits" that Jeremy references,
we need not only the proposals documented, but example test cases, and the
results of using assistive technologies with them.  Until then, such
"practical benefits" are purely hypothetical.  Let's make sure they're not
purely hypothetical.
