Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Success Criteria 3.1.5: “When text requires reading ability more that the lower secondary education level, supplemental content is available…” should be placed at level 2 instead of level 3. EU and many national governments meet WCAG conformance at level 2, which means that people with cognitive disabilities will not be granted full accessibility if 3.1.5 remains on Level 3. In WCAG 1.O checkpoint 14.1 was a level 1 criteria: “Use the clearest and simplest language appropriate for a site\'s content”.
