Tim, some additional comments:
1. Create common format for expressing success criteria: OK, is there a
proposal? e.g., authoring tool must *action verb* ...
2. Terms: Many are different because they are different, however they
should be defined as being different or consistent term used.
3. "Accessible" not defined: propose that accessible term be removed so it
is not circular.
4. Subjective words: agree we must remove them. e.g. quickly, easily, etc.
replace with "one step", or two keystrokes, etc..
5. Technique language vs Criteria language: Should be fixed when 1 is
6. Ensure semantics of criteria unique: Good question to ask, but don't
agree that all are dups. See Jan's reply.
7. Version of WCAG: level yes, version no. Let's try to make the level of
WCAG non normative so it can change in future without updating document.

I agree with the call discussion today that we should use these points as a
methodology in reviewing the success criteria once we get the meat
(substance) or as we complete the substance of the criteria written.
