Peter:

I assume that at the very least, an auditor would need a full list of the
URLs from the website owner to perform an accurate evaluation.  In keeping
with that need to communicate with the website owner, requesting use cases
in addition to URLs seemed reasonable.  The question I have (after thinking
through this) is, what recommendations would we give auditors for testing
dynamic pages that don't have any use cases available?  Not every company
keeps that kind of rigor with their development and requirements tracking.
