With regard to a statement about non-web electronic documents without interactivity beyond hyperlinks automatically complying with much of WCAG, I would like to observe that the way such documents automatically meets  a success criterion like 3.2.1 On Focus is quite different from the way content without features (e.g., input fields, error prevention) automatically meets success criteria.
