It's hard to say exactly given that this is presented as an HTML file and 
not a diff, but for example it seems to remove the <base>, <details>, 
<head>, and <html> elements from the first table (amongst others), it 
change the requirements for <input type=checkbox> controls in a way that 
has no bearing on the decision, it lists roles for <hx> elements that the 
decision does not allow, it forces radio buttons to not be 
menuitemradios... In general there's all kinds of changes in this table 
that have nothing to do with the decision.
