FWIW, this would imply to me that the name of the WG should remain as 
Accessibility.  It just so happens that the WG is focussing on an element 
called Adaptability at the moment... but that doesn't mean that the name 
of the WG needs to change and it doesn't mean that other new terms won't 
be considered in the future.

However, as per my message just now to the Date WG list, I think the WG 
should strongly consider an 'application profile'-driven approach from the 
outset, rather than considering individual new terms in isolation - i.e. 
the sentence above would read better (to me) as

  For DC we are building a new application profile for accessibility and
  that includes a new 'adaptability' element.

Considering new terms in the context of a whole application profile will 
make it easier to determine whether functional requirements are being met 
in the most effective way and will help the Usage Board (and others) to 
understand how any new elements fit into a bigger picture.
