Re: F2F and Partial credit scheme

My initial concerns are that the ATAG2.0 conformance model would be complicated 
by the introduction of two new classes of products, those that would just seek 
to conform to Part A (but go no farther into Part B), and those that would just 
seek to conform to Part B (but go no farther into Part A), in addition to those 
products that would seek to conform to both Parts A and B.  Also, would a 
disincentive be provided for a product to seek to conform to both Parts A and B 
by introduction of the proposed scheme?

My apologies if I'm misunderstanding.  I'm certainly open to discussion on the 
topic...

Thanks and best wishes
