Gregg, this proposal looks like a very important step forwards. In 
Sidar's participation in the EuroAccessibility work on harmonising our 
accessibility testing across a large number of organisations the 
relative simplicity of the WCAG 1 scheme has been very helpful.

A conformance scheme that makes very clear the migration from WCAG 1 to 
WCAG 2, and that is cleanly compatible with the Authoring Tool 
Accessibility Guidelines is extremely helpful to organisations wanting 
to prepare for a smooth migration between versions. In particular it 
makes it possible in flexible environments to test the migration at 
working draft stage, rather than being forced through resource 
constraints to hold off preparing the transition until after WCAG2 has 
been published. This should in turn benefit the development of WCAG 2
