Jason,

	My preference is for #2 ... I think your checkpoint 4.1 should be the
first checkpoint, 1.1, in the guidelines ... it sorta sums up what we are
really all about .... if I use "x" device to access the web, but most folks
use "Y", I want the web to generally work with device "x" ... not only "Y"
and when they make a "z" for some special group of folks, the web should
generally work with "z" .... 

	Comprehension and navigation apply irrespective of input/output "device"
... and address many disabilities that occur independently, or concurrent
with disabilities that require need unique input/output devices addressed
in Guideline 1 ... perhaps they could be combined, as you suggest, but they
would end up with a lot more checkpoints than Guideline 1, and, as I
suggested previously, there may be commonalities between your Guidelines 1
and Guidelines 3 about separating content/structure and presentation.
Perhaps they need to be in both places ....
