On Monday's call:
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2007JanMar/0042.html)...

I took an action item to flesh out the partial credit scheme a bit more. 
So here is now the relevant part of the conformance area might be worded 
(including a new Note at the bottom):

----------------------------

(Wording assumes we will do something about relative priority)

Conformance Levels

Authoring tools may claim full conformance to ATAG 2.0 at one of three 
conformance levels. The level achieved depends on the priority of those 
checkpoints for which the authoring tool has satisfied the success 
criteria. The full conformance levels are:

1. ATAG 2.0 Conformance Level "A"
The authoring tool has satisfied all of the Priority 1 checkpoints in 
Part A and Part B.

2. ATAG 2.0 Conformance Level "Double-A"
The authoring tool has satisfied all of the Priority 1 and Priority 2 
checkpoints in Part A and Part B.

3. ATAG 2.0 Conformance Level "Triple-A"
The authoring tool has satisfied all of the checkpoints in Part A and 
Part B.

In addition, a Partial Conformance claim option is available in cases 
where an authoring tool has satisfied the success criteria in one of the 
two Parts of the document (i.e. "Part A: Make the authoring tool user 
interface accessible" and "Part B: Support the production of accessible 
content") to a higher level than in the other. The partial conformance 
levels are:

4a. ATAG 2.0 Partial Conformance Level ("A"|"Double-A"|"Triple-A"): 
Authoring Tool User Interface
The authoring tool has satisfied all of the relevant success criteria 
for the checkpoints in Part A.

4b. ATAG 2.0 Partial Conformance Level ("A"|"Double-A"|"Triple-A"): 
Content Production"
The authoring tool has satisfied all of the relevant success criteria 
for the checkpoints in Part B.

Note: The AUWG remains committed to the guiding principle that: Everyone 
should have the ability to create and access Web content. Therefore, it 
is recommended that Partial Conformance be claimed as a step towards 
full conformance.

----------------------------

Thoughts?

Jan

PS: Probably a table could help organize this a bit better - especially 
the wording of 4a and 4b.
