I'd really agree with David here.  It only helps to say that tools have been used, especially if someone finds a problem with their own AT and wonders how it was tested.

I think requiring evaluators to report their AT testing tools and
environments is entirely reasonable... Not sure that they should be required
to report testing tools like aviewer, wave, etc... but certainly which
screen reader they used...

WCAG-EM currently supports a large base like in WCAG. Maybe we should add
the requirement to add the tools, user-agents etc. that have been used in
the evaluation to the report and to the evaluation statement.

I agree, we have done this one for italian government sites that
auto-evalutate themeself. This was a technical auto-evalutation conformance
model for WCAG 1.0 testing.
