Yes, the title of the checkpoint is the same, but the description is  
different (and mixed up with the other, LINK_TARGET_FORMAT, to make it  
even harder to understand). The BP is concerned with identifying the  
information in the target content, while WCAG is also and more concerned  
about the link text being meaningful when read in a list of links. WCAG is  
also more comprehensive.

The new document doesn't actually say that the BP is different in this  
respect, but simply says what an author should do in addition to comply  
with WCAG as well. That is mainly to consider how the person interacts  
with the content (like by using a screen reader).
