Below are my comments which I included in the survey:

 

1.4:

                * Elemental Web Pages -> Common Web Pages (medium priority)

                                Elemental makes it sound like it is a subpart of another page or is included in another page.

 

                *              * Key Functionality         (medium)

Should include registering for a website as an example of key functionality

 

1.4 and 2.1:

                * website            (high)

Still needs more clarification especially for very large websites.

 

                For example:  If a university president requests an evaluation of the university website (http://arizona.edu).

                According to 2.1 all departmental webpages linked to the main Arizona.edu page should be included in the possible sample pages even though the main Arizona webpage is "owned" by the administration and the various departmental webpages are "owned" by the respective departments, but because of the non-exclusion clause which says that you cannot say a site conforms except for this section then even if the library or optical sciences department sub site does nto conform, then the entire university site does not conform.
