Somewhat in support as well - my only concern is the reference to WCAG2.0 - how general is it?  Do we have a specific timestamp/snapshot/version or draft of WCAG2.0 in mind for this reference?   WCAG2.0 is changing over time (new editors drafts, possible errata, new techniques/understanding/how to meet..etc - even possible new versions)?   How do we handle the issue of pointing to a possibly changing specification over time? 
Thanks and best wishes

        "Methodology for Assessing Website Conformity to WCAG 2.0" is clear, concise and usable. Gets my vote.

Dear group,

As trivial as it may sound it is time for us to think about a name for the Methodology, so that we can start fleshing it out.

Here are some brainstorms to get your creativity flowing:

# Favorites:
  - Sampling, Inspection, and Technical Evaluation [of Websites for WCAG 2.0] (SITE) ... especially when used in combination like "WCAG 2.0 SITE"
  - Methodology for Assessing Website Conformity to WCAG 2.0 (MAC)

# Alternatives:
  - Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility (CEWA or Conf)
  - Accessibility Conformance Evaluation of Websites (ACEW)
  - Conformance/Conformity Assessment Procedure (CAP)
  - Conformance/Conformity Assessment Methodology (CAM)
  - Website Accessibility Evaluation (WAE)
  - Website Accessibility Assessment (WAA)
  - Website Accessibility Methodology (WAM)
  - Website Accessibility Assessment Procedure (WAAP)
  - Website Accessibility Assessment Methodology (WAAM)
  - Website Accessibility Evaluation Procedure (WAEP)
  - Website Accessibility Evaluation Methodology (WAEM)
  - Website Accessibility Inspection Procedure (WAIP)
  - Website Accessibility Inspection Methodology (WAIM)

# Not serious:
  - Conformance of Websites (CoW, WCAG-CoW, or WAI-CoW)
  - Accessibility Conformance of Websites (A-CoW)
  - Procedure for Accessibility Inspection (PAI like "pay")
  - Procedure for Evaluation of Accessibility (PEA)
  - Procedure for Evaluation of Accessibility Conformance (PEACe)
  - Accessibility Evaluation of Websites (AEW)
  - Harmonized Assessment Methodology (HAM)
  - WCAG 2.0 Harmonized Assessment Methodology (WHAM)
  - Website Conformance Assessment Guidelines (WCAG)
