Hi Shadi,
You forgot some :-).
Eric


Candidate titles (alternative suggestions still welcome):
- Methodology for Evaluating Website Accessibility Conformance (MEWAC)
- Website Accessibility Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0 

Also proposal: Website Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0
(Accessibility is in WCAG we provide the WEM for that)

Open brainstorming for shortname:
- SiteAccess
- WCAG-Check
- AccessSite
- WCAG-Site
- AccessCheck
- SiteCheck
- CheckSite
- WAMBAM
- MCEWA (Methodology for Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility)
- CEWA (Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility)
- CEW2WCAG2 (Conformance Evaluation of Websites to WCAG 2)
- UWEM (Unified Web Evaluation Methodology)
- SITE (no meaning yet)
- MAWA (Methodology for Assessing Website Accessibility)
- MDWC (Methodology for Determining Website Compliance)
- EWAMAC (Evaluation Methodology for Assessing Website Accessibility Conformity)
- EMAWC (Evaluation Methodology for Assessing Website Conformity)
- WEM (Website Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0)

Some acronyms are already existing organizations or festivals (including MEWAC).

I trust you can make out the less serious suggestions... ;)

Best,
   Shadi
