Proposed edit to note -- to avoid conflict with criteria

in 1.1
propose changing the comment (in the definition section) from

 " Depending on the purpose and content of the non-text content, a short
label may be appropriate, or a more thorough explanation may be

To " Note: Depending on the non-text content, a full text equivalent may
not be possible.   See criteria above."

since the note would otherwise contradict the criteria since it poses a
more general exception than is allowed by the criteria.

This shouldn’t change the meaning or effect... but am posting in case
someone thinks it does.    [ the criteria will read
" where it is not possible to describe the non-text content in words or
for text to provide the same function as the non-text content, a label
identifying the content is provided".
