Hi Richard,

Good addition, thanks!

Maybe we could go a step further like Detlev proposes and replace replicable by reliable. We had a combination in an earlier draft. At the university of Twente, they teach that replicable is a part of the reliability when measuring. Detlev writes that "'Reliable' is less deterministic and seems a lot more suited. A test can be reliable within tolerances (see R14). To claim Replicability and allow for tolerances at the same time seems disingenuous to me."
We could turn R04 into Reliable. 
Kindest regards,

I am happy with R04 using "Replicable". But the statement needs an extra
"same" just to clarify that point. IE it should read

R04: Replicable
    Different Web accessibility evaluators using the same methods on the
same website(s) should get the same results.
