Summary of Issue: \"Authoring tools\" section has been removed
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The AUWG feels that the \"Authoring tools\" section, which was created by a joint effort between the WCAG-GL and AUWG provided valuable context for WCAG 2.0 and its apparent replacement by the text \"Introduces guidelines on the design of authoring and evaluation tools.\" appears insufficent. 

Proposed Change:
Restore the \"Authoring tools\" section:

Authoring tools

A large part of Web content is created using authoring tools. These tools often determine how Web content is implemented, either by making authoring decisions directly or by limiting the choices available to the author. As a result, authoring tools will play an important role in creating Web content that conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. At the same time, we recommend that all authors become familiar with the Guidelines because this will help in creating accessible content and coverage of the Guidelines may vary between tools.

Developers of authoring tools can make their tools aware of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines by following the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines. The working group encourages users and purchasers of authoring tools to consider conformance to the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines as a criterion when selecting tools. The current version at WCAG 2.0\'s release is Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. However, version 2.0 is nearing completion and it is based on WCAG 2.0. The latest version of the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 can be found at http://www.w3.org/TR/ATAG20.
