I added a link to the end of the preamble paragraph. I didn't add it to
each of the bullets though, that seemed redundant. I can if you really want.

Oops, copy paste error, fixed.

I don't find a discussion on "set of documents" to point back to. They
already point back to the discussion on "document".

Hmm, this one modifies the Intent from Understanding, not the SC itself.
It's not yet been the practice to show how the Understanding would
appear with the modified guidance. I can, but a few comments:

    * The Understanding is a lot longer than the SC, so the modified
      quote would be much bigger.
    * We might want to differentiate modified Understanding from
      modified SC. But there are already a lot of things we're trying to
      differentiate from each other, and each new thing magnifies
    * I haven't checked, perhaps there are other places we'd need to do
      the same thing if we decide to go there.

For the most part, modifications to Understanding are done by actual
modifications to Understanding - I'll publish an Editors' draft of
Understanding that has WCAG2ICT changes in it. In this particular case,
I guess the modification is one needed for WCAG2ICT but not one that
could be made into the WCAG version.
