So what does this actually say? How is <wcag:levelA> used? It needs to be
attached to a URI of the conforming document somehow.

I also wasn't sure how you use wcag:meets, wcag:fails etc.? Don't we at

defined specific to each guideline doc? Can you write some examples?

In our schema for annotations we did define Classes and Properties as follows
