Formal studies don't cover disability access adequately, use experts too 
where it says in 2.1 Document the status quo:
The Working Group will catalog existing presentation of security
   information and corresponding user interpretations reported in user
   studies.
please consider
You can't limit the user interpretations that you integrate into your data to 
formal studies.  Formal studies are often not available that cover people with 
disability-adapted delivery contexts.  You need to open the gates to allow for 
the advice of experts and some anecdotal experience from users in building 
this reference base of experience.
Why? 
Most studies that attempt to test for statistical significance don't have the 
numbers of people with ability diversity to control for that or even let the 
experience of people with disabilities count much.  So weaker forms of 
evidence than formal studies have to be relied on
