Baseline - The theory of baseline will not stop a developer choosing an
inappropriate and inaccessible baseline.

Proposed Change:

Remove the baseline theory, or allow only UAAG compliant programs in

Response from Working Group:

The conformance section of WCAG2 has been completely rewritten. The term
"baseline" has been replaced by "accessibility-supported Web technologies".
The issue of what it means to be an accessibility-supported Web technology
is addressed in the section "Accessibility Support of Web Technologies" at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/#accessibility-support .
Response from GSW:
Thank you for taking my comment into account.
