The 26 July 2001 draft combined checkpoints 1.2 and 1.3 into one checkpoint.

Previous 1.2: Synchronize text equivalents with multimedia presentations.
Previous 1.3: Synchronize a description of the essential visual information 
in multimedia presentations.

Proposed/current 1.2: 1.2 Synchronize media equivalents with time-dependent 

This change was made because it was proposed by Sean (13 January 2001) [1] 
and William (8 January 2001) [2] in separate threads. They received some 
support. The success criteria are similar, so they seemed to fit together 
well. Whether you synchronize a text-equivalent as an audio description or 
synchronize a recorded human voice - those seem to be techniques.

Should these be combined or should we keep them separate?
