Hi all,

After reviewing the WCAG 2.0 Last Call, I'm glad to say I don't have any 
major concerns. It would have been nice to have a bit more text about 
the role of authoring tools and ATAG, but what's in is ok.

My thoughts:

1.1.1 - Media, Test, Sensory - Suggest breaking this complicated bullet
into it's 5 parts

1.4.1 - Not sure Note 1 is necessary...other forms of perception are
covered in several places including later in 1.4: "Note 1: This Success
Criterion addresses color perception specifically. Other forms of
perception are covered in Guideline 1.3."

2.3.1 - Ed: "Web pages do" link

2.2.5 - Exception needed for unsubmitted data? as in ATAG A.3.2.1

3.3.4 - Maybe make more general by including examples as e.g.s - as it
stands sending emails unlikely to be included

Conformance: I think listing the user agent tested on should be required 
for increased transparency.

And here are some things I think ATAG 2.0 could pick up and use:

- 1.3.1 "or are available in text"

- Notes in in 1.4

- Several things new in 1.4 including 1.4.8 Visual Presentation

- 2.1.2 No Keyboard Trap

- In the understanding document, the 3 headings:
Sufficient, Advisory, Failures
