Subject: New proposal for WCAG conformance


snip.

- The terms CORE and EXTENDED are dropped. (these terms are used
differently
in other technical specs and didn't quite fit here.  Also they
introduced a
completely different structure and terminology than WCAG 1.0)
- All 20 (or so) guidelines would be listed under the four principles
and
numbered  1.1, 1.2 etc. (no change from previous drafts)
- The conformance would take the form of the familiar A, AA, and AAA.
The
only difference would be that guidelines without category 1 criteria
would
be listed at the end of each principle and would have a title following
them
that said, "no Level A criteria for this guideline."
- the Categories might be relabeled A, AA and AAA


Great proposal...
I think also this will help the referring for the EU Community for the
A, AA, AAA levels
