1.)	Develop and promote a set of accessibility standards within the LSB and with the goals of improving overall
accessibility, fostering interoperability, and binary compatibility for assistive technologies on Open Source LSB
platforms.

2.)	Provide a mechanism for LSB application accessibility certification.

3.)	Provide advice, information and recommendations to other, non-LSB entities regarding accessibility requirements in 
the full free and open software stack, as appropriate.

These behavior standards will consist of measurable API and ABI
components which will provide comprehensive, consistent, services
for use by assistive technologies products. They will also define
the standards for delivery of accessibility information and services
by applications and UI toolkits.
