1. The list of "required" reading is somewhat daunting. Reading the
Techniques end to end is counter recommendation, but that appears to be the
suggestion.
2. The glossary is spectacular. That collection of definitions alone is
worth reading the document!

More examples of essential functionality may be needed like "application
for  services from an agency."
Explicit reference of Dojo or JQuery may be vendor biased.  Perhaps use
categories like polyfills or Widget Libraries.

This is the most difficult to read. It is the most detailed, legalistic

Comments: 
A complete but focused guide to website evaluation, Really a necessary
contribution. It needs advertising.
