We have for some time had a problem with people misunderstanding WCAG 2.0 Techniques and Failures.  Many have thought that the Techniques were required in order to conform to WCAG 2.0.    We have done a number of things to address this -  but not always with success.

A suggestion was made that we create a single page with a simple message that could be pointed to by people wishing to make proper use of the Techniques clear.   It was pointed out that such a page would be useful to many stakeholders and organizations, including the WCAG 2.0 Evaluation Taskforce. 

Such a page is posted for comments and suggestions at  http://tinyurl.com/WCAGTechNote
