Hi Judy, hi all,
some my thoughts:

1. Introduction to WCAG 2.0
* http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/intro.html

penultimate paragraph:

"Several success criteria require that content (or certain aspects of  
content) can be "programmatically determined." This means that the  
author is responsible for ensuring that the content is delivered in  
such a way that software can access it. This is important in order to  
allow assistive technologies to recognize it and present it to the  
user, even if the user requires a different sensory modality than the  
original. For example, some assistive technologies convert text into  
speech or braille. This will also allow content in the future to be  
translated into simpler forms for people with cognitive disabilities,  
or to allow access by other agent based technologies. This can happen  
only if the content itself can be programmatically determined."

I find this paragraph is a bit difficult to understand.


2. Comparison between WCAG 1.0 and 2.0
* http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/appendixD.html

In this list there is a Priority checkpoint order, while in the WCAG  
2.0 - Appendix B: Checklist
* http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/appendixB.html

the order is by Guideline.

So I think that maybe the user/reader can be disoriented.
