Dear Eval TF:
   From today's teleconference, Agenda item #4:"Gather current best practices, such as studies, surveys, or existing methodologies"; I like to propose an existing methodology "structured Assurance Case Methodology" as possible evaluation methodology for evaluating the conformance of websites to WCAG.  This methodology has been used in assuring safety 
In the UK [1,2] and US [3,4]. I can offer to provide a short tutorial on this methodology. Let me know if you all are interested.
