Internal IDs should remain unchanged. It is not practical to have the 
translation of WCAG have all the techniques references (or to the HTML 
rec.) back to the English when a translation exists. The translation 
would be unusable. If the fragment IDs (eg, #tech_my_checkpoint) are 
changed, it becomes very difficult to link and maintain the translations.

These things should perhaps go in a separate non-normative style guide.
