One of my action items was to write a sentence about the "other options for
optimization." In looking at the current draft, it seems that Wendy's
re-phrasing of some of the concepts already has taken this in to account.
There is a paragraph in the introduction which says:

<quote>Not all devices are the same. Not all systems are the same. Not all
people are the same. In following the guidelines, attempt to reach the
maximum number of people in the maximum number of scenarios. This can be
achieved through a single accessible rendering or multiple accessible
renderings optimized for different situations.</ quote>

The last sentence, in particular, seems to summarize the concept quite well.
We could make part of it a link to the document about server side
techniques. And, if we have documents about content optimization, we could
also link to those with this sentence, either inline (which seems to be the
current style of the document) or as a separate phrase. For example:

<quote> . . . This can be achieved through a single accessible rendering or
multiple accessible renderings optimized for different situations (see
Server-Side Techniques; Content Optimization Techniques).</quote>

Both of the terms in parentheses would be links. Either way, I think that
Wendy's new sentence accomplishes my original goal.
