I do see your point Charles, however if the group(ie wcag eowg ua...) 
spends very significant amounts of time directing their efforts towards 
a particular audience, then it must be politic to mention this in documents.
One can only have areas of expertise in which one spends time.

I have been asking for time to be devoted to a less literate audience 
with little result, on a very regular basis, for a long time.
the group can have no claim to meeting this need as very little time is 
spent creating documents, or indeed discussing the authoring of them for 
this very large group.

please compare:

WCAG 2.0 deliverables are easier to understand and use than WCAG 1.0.
They are intended for a wider audience.

R1: WCAG 2.0 deliverables should be more understandable and usable by a
  wider audience than was anticipated for WCAG 1.0, including policy
  makers.   While the WCAG WG does not set policy, harmonization of
  accessibility requirements helps drive demand for supporting
  implementations in Web applications; therefore it should be easy for
  policy makers and individuals responsible for implementing policy  to
  understand, cite and/or adopt WCAG 2.0 and related deliverables.
