Proposal for the at minimum bit:
At minimum allow the author to add or edit any element or property supported
by the content type specification.

Note that this is close to the requirement of checkpoint 7.3 - is that
redundant? (the fact that that has to be in an accessible fashion is already
covered by 7.1)

  1.1 Ensure that the author can produce accessible content in the markup
  language(s) or content type(s) supported by the tool. [Priority 1]
  At minimum, provide a code editing view that will accept manually-coded
  accessibility content and ensure that this content is preserved as per
  Checkpoint 1.2.

  WL's point: We are suggesting a UI implementation without specifically
  saying that it should be accessible.

  JR, CMN: 7.1 already covers the accessibility of the tool. JR: Besides,
  we're not telling them to do a drag-and-drop solution for which
  accessibility would be a major concern - we're talking about text
  editing.

  CMN's point: At minimum is misleading. Tools don't have to do this. We
  might say "The simplest way to meet this is..."

  Cheers,
  Jan
