Concerning the second issue "websites" to "websites and web-delivered applications".........

I understand why this is being suggested, however, WCAG has a definition of "websites" that covers all kinds of web content. WCAG is web CONTENT accessibility guidelines, not the HTML accessibility guidelines.

My 2 cents.............:-)
