reinvent Help and DoIt 
where it says, in 10.1.8 Provide explanations, justifying the advice or 
information given
   If the user is expected to carry out a task or an action to achieve
   the desired level of security, they should have access to an
   explanation that justifies why it is necessary.
Yes, yes, yes.
Where the projection of the security infoset that the WG has nominated 
as "what to present" fails to communicate, and the user can recognize this, 
there needs to be built into the *easy* interactive fabric of Rich Web content 
a way for them to get more information when they will somehow manage to 
recognize that they care about the decision and don't grasp the info they 
need.  See comment to 10.1.7 for more.
