Hi Shadi, all,

I voted already in the survey. In our last telco we discussed the
techniques-issue. We've discussed this issue already in this list, so I just
want to post the following from WCAG2 and a proposal for 1e:
 
"Note: that all techniques are informative"
(http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/intro.html) and the definition of
"informative" in the glossary of WCAG2: "for information purposes and not
required for conformance"
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-WCAG20-20081211/#informativedef).

I propose to move Step 1e: Define the Techniques to be Used (Optional) and
the text belonging to this point into somewhere in the Report Section.
Guided with an explicit statement, that techniques are not the checkpoints.
Reason: I fear that the current version will lead to confusion about the
character of techniques, especially when they are combined with
"Requirement" (even when it is optional).

As already posted in the survey: I'm missing a statement upon goodness
criteria. But I think in the moment the document is a first draft, but we
shouldn't leave these issues behind.

Will there be another survey, before publishing the document?

Best

Kerstin
