I believe goal 2.3 gets at understandability, with the phrase "intended 
user interpretation". If you think there should be more, what concrete 
text would you propose?

ISSUE-79: Understandability of security settings

http://www.w3.org/2006/WSC/Group/track/issues/79

Raised by: Bruno von Niman
On product: Note: use cases etc.

Chapter 2 should describe or at leaest mention the issue of 
understandability, 
as research evidence indicates that consumers do not even understand their 
own 
security settings (and even less so the technology behind them and the 
threats 
and risks).
