Joe and/or I can look after this. We'll be working up the new content 
between us and then checking back with you for a final review.

Oh - big workload alert! ;-) Right now, we're really light on bodies in 
the a11y group and stretched terribly thin covering track, documentation 
etc. Taking on a full theme review might be a bit too much long term 
unless we can get more people involved.

Any chance of a compromise here? Could we "train up" a couple of 
interested and experienced theme reviewers to reduce the load? The last 
thing I want to do is slow down the review process because the a11y 
reviewers can't cope.
