Checkpoint 3.4 currently reads:

"Use multimedia to illustrate concepts."

The corresponding checkpoint in WCAG 1.0 (checkpoint 14.2) read as

"Supplement text with graphic or auditory presentations where they
     will facilitate comprehension of the page."

In order to move this discussion forward, please indicate:

a. Whether you are satisfied with either of the above formulations.

b. If not, please provide a proposal that includes the following

1. Your preferred alternative wording for checkpoint 3.4.

2. Your rationale (why you think your proposal is better, whom it
   would benefit, and why you think it would benefit them).

3. Success criteria: what would a web content developer need to
   accomplish in order to meet the checkpoint.

Unless those who are interested in this issue start providing concrete
proposals of this kind, I suspect the discussion will continue to
reiterate the disagreements and give rise to the confusions which have
characterised it up to this point.
