Here's what the structure on this looks like:

<wcag version="2.0" status="strawman proposal">
   <principles>
     <principle>
       <summary>...</summary>
       <guidelines>
         <guideline>
           <summary>...</summary>
           <checkpoints>
             <technology type="html">
               <checkpoint>...</checkpoint>
               <checkpoint>...</checkpoint>
             </technology>
             <technology type="css">
               <checkpoint>...</checkpoint>
               <checkpoint>...</checkpoint>
             </technology>
             <technology type="xml">
               <checkpoint>...</checkpoint>
               <checkpoint>...</checkpoint>
             </technology>
           </checkpoints>
         </guideline>
         <guideline>
           ...
         </guideline>
       </guidelines>
     </principle>
     <principle>
       ...
     </principle>
   </principles>
</wcag>

Is this accurate?  What's clearly missing from the proposal is an
explanation of how checkpoints work, a description of where the
priority is assigned and to what, and a sense of where text gets
inserted.  Does the WD-WCAG20-20000726 proposal require a
Techniques document?
