For example, a test sample claims that Success Criterion 1.1.1 failed 
because the text of the ALT attribute is longer than X characters; and 
this limit is not specified by any technique or test procedure. This 
would be an interpretation (or extension) of the Guidelines and would 
effectively change its meaning. We want to avoid these types of issues.
