Hi all,

Here's the ATAG 2.0 text I was looking for:

"Existing Technologies: The success criteria in Part B only apply to 
support for accessible authoring practices that are relevant to 
technologies that the authoring tool already has the ability to create 
or edit. For example, a markup authoring tool that adds images by simply 
linking to their URIs would be required to support the production of 
alternative text for images in the markup, but it would not be required 
to add image editing functionality to ensure sufficient contrast in case 
any images are of text."

I think this could be made more clear (especially the handle). More 
thoughts to follow later in the week.
