i think manager and developers that i encounter would brush off a document
with the word guideline.  This term is associated with a company or federal
agenct or office's guideline.  That is, everyone modifies a document to
build guidleines.

However, everyone understands the seriousness of standards and

Jason, appreciate the good discussion.

Would it make sense at this time to conduct an survey to WAI-IG or others to
solicit their opinion on the guidelines and how they are being received?
