Hi all,

The current wording of B.2.1.1 links to the conformance claim section to 
explain the concepts of included and excluded technologies with no 
clarification that conformance claims are optional. I propose we add that:

PROPOSED NEW WORDING:

B.2.1.1 Decision Support: If the authoring tool provides authors with a 
choice between web content technology options, then the following 
information is provided for each option: (Level A) [Implementing B.2.1.1]
(a) General Information: general information about the accessibility of 
the technology to end users; and
(b) For "Included Technologies": information on the accessible content 
support features provided for that technology by the authoring tool; and
(c) For "Excluded Technologies": both a warning that choosing that 
technology may result in web content accessibility problems and 
information on alternative included technologies (if available).
NOTE: If a conformance claim is made, the claim cites the Included and 
Exclude technologies.


CURRENT WORDING:

B.2.1.1 Decision Support: If the authoring tool provides authors with a 
choice between web content technology options, then the following 
information is provided for each option: (Level A) [Implementing B.2.1.1]
(a) General Information: general information about the accessibility of 
the technology to end users; and
(b) For "Included Technologies": for technologies included in a 
conformance claim, information on the accessible content support 
features provided for that technology by the authoring tool; and
(c) For "Excluded Technologies": for technologies excluded from a 
conformance claim, both a warning that choosing that technology may 
result in web content accessibility problems and information on 
alternative included technologies (if available).
