I've posted the question in an italian lawyer discussion list and they
said that there is no problem. In our Costitutional act there is the
article 21 that refer to the liberty of expression but it is not
oriented to the case of the WCAG.
This refer to a possibility for every people to say what they wants and
write what they wants without censure and WCAG are not a censure of
ideas but a set of guidelines that helps to make more clear language.
For eg. there are some directives of the italian government that ask for
the "plain language" in all the documentation so... there are no
problems for Italy.
