Re: the F2F, does anyone want to host? Another possibility is CSUN, 
which is in mid-March and often includes WAI meetings (I could check if 
we have missed any deadlines for this).

Re: the partial credit scheme idea:

The "Partial Conformance" idea that Jutta had yesterday sounded 

Jutta didn't have chance to elaborate, but my first thought is that it 
might involve two new categories of conformance:

"Partial Conformance to ATAG 2.0: Authoring Tool User Interface"
(could be claimed if Part A is met to at least Level A)

"Partial Conformance to ATAG 2.0: Content Production"
(could be claimed if Part B is met to at least Level A)
