Just to reiterate the position of the Sidar WCAG2-espa group:

We think it is a bad idea to discuss any kind of prioritisation of the 
checkpoints at this stage, since we don't have enough clarity about 
what the actual requirements are going to be. When they are more 
settled, and it is clear what benefits whom, we will be in a position 
to revisit this issue with the necessary information at hand. At that 
time we agree that it makes sense to do so. In the meantime we assume 
that it is likely there will be some kind of levels to take account of 
differing benefits, but don't want to try and pre-determine what they 
should be.
