Al, the draft requirements document for WCAG 2.0 [1] states:

Clearly identify who benefits from accessible content

* WCAG 2.0 will clearly identify the target audience of each requirement.
* WCAG 2.0 will address as completely as possible the needs of users with 
  - blindness,
  - low vision,
  - color deficit or distortions,
  - deafness,
  - hearing loss,
  - impairments of intelligence, memory, or thinking,
  - the inability to interpret and/or formulate language symbols,
  - learning disabilities,
  - speech impairments,
  - paralysis, weakness, and other problems with movement and coordination of limbs,
  - photo sensitive epilepsy,
  - and combinations thereof.

Do you feel that this is an appropriate requirement and do you feel that
the approach you outlined will address this requirement?
