Thanks for your feedback. That's a good point re: A.2.1.

In Part A there is some disparity between the requirements on Web-based 
tools vs. non-Web-based tools. This is because a set of W3C approved 
requirements already exists for Web-based tools (i.e. WCAG) but not for 
non-Web-based tools. The group has dealt with this by bringing together 
a set of requirements for non-Web-based tools (based on WCAG, UAAG, and 
other works) but the result is invariably different for the two broad 
sets of tools.

However, it seems in this case that the requirements are more different 
than they need to be. Therefore I suggest we change the "For Web-Based 
Interface Components:" note from:

Meeting Checkpoint A.0.1 will serve to meet this checkpoint.

to more precise wording - like that in A.2.7:

Meeting Checkpoint A.0.1 will serve to meet success criteria 1 and 2 of 
this checkpoint. Browser functionality may be relied on to achieve some 
parts of success criteria 3 and 4 (e.g. Single-key access to move 
content focus to the next enabled control in user interface, 
Key-plus-modifier-key (or single-key) access to "undo") as long as the 
applicable user agent(s) are specified in the conformance profile.
