Since this does not apply to all types of Web content as I argued
earlier, does that mean it has to be at level 3? I thought one of our
principles was that anything which couldn't reasonably be applied to
all, or most types of content had to move to level 3.

Of course we can alter that principle if we want to, but it would need
to be done explicitly and deliberately.

I am also not sure whether "informative" is testable in difficult
cases.
