Dear Eric, Eval TF, 

I vote not to allow error margins - for the reason I outlined in my previous email on this subject.  

Instead, I would continue to support a simple disclaimer such as "The evaluator has tried their hardest to minimise the margin for error by actively looking for all content relevant to each technique being assessed which might have caused a fail." 

Occam's razor - simplest is best...

As indicated in the discussion, it also depends on other things like the size of the sample, the complexity of the website and the qualities of the evaluator, use of tools (for collecting pages, making a first check) etc. etc. But we need to be agree on:
