DISCUSSION

Use cases - Tom, Sailesh, and Roberto have worked up a number of use cases,
David is continuing to interview people. We need to continue to refer to
these use cases to keep ourselves honest as we do our work, and make sure
that the wider WCAG development is also aware of this resource. We would
like to formalize and publish these in a central location, for our own use
as well as others'. 

Implementation testing - there are two types of testing, testing the
specification (the guidelines) and testing content. Focusing mainly on
specification testing, we considered what needs to be done and how to do it.
The implementation testing framework draft [1] is a starting point but needs
to be expanded. Considering the issue that we need to verify that the
guidelines and techniques lead to true benefits to people with disabilities,
we looked at the How People with Disabilities Use the Web document [2] and
decided to formalize the personae and use cases found there. We also need to
support Evaluation and Repair Tools guidance, not to validate tools but as a
way of testing the advice within the techniques. We're unsure where this
lands but considered the possibility of creating another Task Force within
the WCAG group.

There was a brief tangent about using the WCAG 2.0 Techniques to support
WCAG 1.0. It's an open question whether or how much we want to do this, but
we did think it would be a good idea to create a mapping document between
WCAG 1.0 and WCAG 2.0 techniques, and reference WCAG 2.0 Techniques to WCAG
1.0 Checkpoints as well as WCAG 2.0 Success Criteria.
