Regarding Failures for 2.4.6 (http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/navigation-mechanisms-descriptive.html)
I'd like to propose a failure for this:  The use of numerous, irrelevant headings.

For Example:
<h3><a href="example.html">Some Passage of Text</a></h3>
<h3><a href="another_example.html">Another Passage of Text</a></h3>

By applying headings incorrectly, or for passages of text which do not delineate a section, users of assistive technology may be stripped of this useful navigation technique.
