The "problem" is that we refer only to the first section of the ISO 
TS/16701:2003 Point 7.2 (General Guidelines) that don't have a Level 2 
If we want to make an "ISO" Conformance with all the three levels, we 
need to refer to all the ISO TS/16071:

7.3 Assistive technologies
7.3.1 Use system-standard input/output (core: application)
7.3.2 Provide object labels (core: OS/application)
7.3.3 Make event notification available to assistive technologies (core: 
7.3.4 Make object attributes available to assistive technologies (core: 
7.3.5 Present user notification in a relevant manner (core: 

7.4 Keyboard-input configuration
7.4.1 General
7.4.2 Enable sequential entry of multiple keystrokes (core: OS)
7.4.3 Provide customization of delay before key acceptance (primary: OS)
7.4.4 Provide customization of same-key double-strike acceptance 
(primary: OS)


7.14 Keyboard input focus
7.14.1 Provide focus cursor (core: OS/application)
7.14.2 Provide keyboard navigation (core: OS/application)
7.14.3 Provide navigation to task-appropriate groups of controls (core: 
7.14.4 Retain input-focus location (secondary: OS/application)

(Note: not all the requirements have been posted due ISO copyright.

If we refer to WCAG (and we can intend also WCAG 2.0), we don't must 
refer only to HTML. We need also to think that an authoring tool could 
be Adobe Acrobat (or PDF Maker), ecc.
