"WCAG2ICT TF Notes" sections on all our SCs? [was Re: FYI - answer to question from meeting.]

Your message below reminded me that discussed & gave a thumbs up to the 
idea of having a Notes section on each SC, describing how the disability 
use cases from WCAG Intent were different - if at all - in the non-web 
context(s), and how they were addressed in the non-web context(s).

Is there some way to globally add such an (empty for now) section to 
each SC, such that we can then start filling that in?  I think it would 
be very helpful to have as much of that work done & into our next public 
draft as possible.  I think it would really help our public reviewers 
understand our work, help validate the work we've already done, and help 
us with the few remaining SCs where we haven't yet found language we can 
all agree with.
