I have alreaedy given my thoughts on the first two proposals - I'll respond
to anything new from the minutes.

With regard to a conformance scheme I favour using the principles of WCAG
1.0, although I am aware of the issue raised by cognitive disabilities of
various kinds meaning that there is a risk of completely flattening the
priority scheme.

  The following issues will be discussed at the meeting:

  1. Gregg's conformance proposal and the follow-up messages which have
     been posted to the list: see the thread starting at

  2. The question of whether, and if so how the guidelines should
  address situations in which the need for accessibility is
  counterbalanced against countervailing priorities affecting the design
  of the content: see Charles' contribution at
  and Cynthia's argument at
  with my analysis of some of the options available to the working group
  at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2001OctDec/0057.html

  3. If time permits, we should commence discussion of the principles to
     be used in distinguishing between the different levels of
     conformance. WCAG 1.0 bases its conformance levels on a priority
     scheme, and we need to decide what distinctions should play a
     comparable role in WCAG 2.0.
