MC: 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 complexity.
   - 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.

ALS2: You're right. I spoke to quickly. I was doing too quick of a review
and just noticed that we had said replace something but didn't show how it
would read. We don't need to be copying the entire intent section again.
