Thank you for relaying relevant WCAG discussion to ERT, I agree that we should keep close track of what is going on in WCAG 2.0 and make sure we can contribute as evaluation tool developers and researchers. However, some of the participants of this WG are also in the WCAG WG and it really makes more sense to keep this specific discussion which is more about the *design* of the guidelines (rather than it's testability) there as much as possible. We should keep focusing on methods to evaluate these guidelines and give WCAG WG feedback on how testable they are (rather than what level, etc). Do you agree?
