Hi Greg,

Thanks for your review. Regarding your point of clarification... yes almost, 
the evaluator chooses whichever version of WCAG they want to use for their own 
evaluation. 

So for example, the following could happen once WCAG 2.0 is released: an 
outside evaluator might say, "I tested Mac version tool-X and it does not 
conform to ATAG 2.0 level A with respect to WCAG 1.0", while the toolmaker 
could reply by saying "ok, but it does conform to ATAG 2.0 level A, with 
respect to WCAG 2.0, the more recent W3C spec."

If you have any ideas for how to communicate this in the clearest possible 
terms, please send them to the list.

Cheers,
Jan
