      I would like to see more detailed guidelines developed, but not to 
the point of defining how to illustrate a particular word. In deciding how 
to illustrate the term "privacy policy", you need to define what you mean 
by those terms, then ferret out the visual elements of the definition. Like 
the "about" link on many sites, the illustration for that link will depend 
on what about the site you are going to talk about.

       It is about as easy to illustrate well as it is to write well --- 
There are way-many sites that illustrate how NOT to write well, and there 
will be way-many sites that illustrate how NOT to illustrate well. 
Hopefully, the WAI site will not remain in either category.

        Let's stop finding reasons to avoid this responsibility and get 
going on meeting it.
