In mapping HTML techniques to the guidelines, the techniques working
group mapped linearization of documents to the first level 3 success
criterion in guideline 2.4 [1]. Although this seemed to be the
appropriate mapping, we believe this should be a level 1 issue, not a
level 3 issue. Therefore we propose that this success criterion be moved
to level 1.

Roberto Scano:
I agree with Michael. Without guarantee of linearization of the
contents, how can we assure to people that use screen readers to
understand the contents?
