Hi Eric, all,

I hadn't enough time. I also like the direction, but I have to points (as
also written in the webform of the WG):

1. "Requirement 1.e Requirement 1.e: The WCAG 2.0 techniques to be used
during the evaluation should be specified" and "Step 4.b: Apply Documented
WCAG 2.0 Techniques". As written in WCAG 2.0: "no techniques are required
for conformance". Even if optional in WACEM people might think that they
have to use techniques. The question is also if testing techniques is valid
against what is written in the WCAG2 itself.

There are a lot of misunderstandings about the character of techniques. We
should make a clear statement about that instead of proposing use of
techniques during evaluation processes.

2. Missing explicit statement about the main goodness criteria for
evaluations: Objectivity, Reliability, Validity

And very minor I propose to write the name of the participants like this:
pre name, name. This would be more nice.

Best

Kerstin
