Wendy,

Thanks for bringing this thread to our attention.

The draft ATAG2.0 has a similar requirement for choosing technologies 
wisely (checkpoint 2.2, below). Currently it points to WCAG, which would 
cause it to automatically pick up any reference WCAG makes to UAAG:

2.2 Support formats that enable the creation of WCAG-conformant content. 
[Priority 1]

Success Criteria (1 of 1): In order to give priority to a format, that 
format must have a published techniques document for meeting each WCAG 
checkpoint

(The idea is that ATAG conformant tools can create content in a range of 
formats, but only those that are capable of serving as the basis for 
accessible authoring are allowed to be recommended to the author)

Cheers,
Jan
