Since you've already done so perhaps you can give Jonathan some tips.

Guideline 3 needs illustrative help (a little "comic relief"?) or it will 
stand as an absurdity that the recommendation to illustrate is not itself 
illustrated.

We complain enough about all this but something needs actual *doing*. Some 
simple "edaptation" will enable those who want fast downloads to leave 
graphics/sounds unretrieved in the interest of speed and those who choose 
to be fully informed to acquire the probably outstanding multi-media content.

Similar efforts on other WAI materials would be helpful - not to mention 
other W3C areas, many of which have already started moves in that direction.
