How about the following as something to consider - work from

Two words or a LOT of words.   But someone said (Bruce I think) that substituted many words for a few to get transparency.  This is many more but... 

give it a look
give it a think

comments welcome



PROPOSAL


blah blah ......replacing the term Web Page by the term  "interaction context"  or by the definition  "the current set of input and output elements, intended by an author to be available at one time to the user, for the user to see, hear, feel or act on, where the set is limited to those elements that are present if the user does not act other than simple navigation among the elements".


Set of Web pages currently defined in WCAG as 

Set of Web Pages
collection of Web pages that share a common purpose and that are created by the same author, group or organization
Note:  Different language versions would be considered different sets of Web pages. 

and it becomes quite logically 

Set of Interaction Contexts
collection of interaction contexts that share a common purpose and that are created by the same author, group or organization
Note:  Different language versions would be considered different sets of interaction contexts.


The one problem I did see was that you can navigate among a set of open windows from many different applications.  
So that is why the "author intent" clause is there above -- since authors have no control over what all windows you have open.  and we need to  keep the user from navigating among contexts and have the grand sum of all open windows constitute the context.
