This could mean that we could have inaccessible web sites with "n" other parallel web sites.
This could be good if contents are presented in different "version" by css or xslt, but made "n" parallel sites - imho - means not support the "design for all". I think that this point is one of the point that could be rewieved in a wcag 1.0 second edition and/or with an integration in the cited note (a wcag errata?)

    Yes, as far as I understand, that is true. Why is this problematic
    (other than for the reasons cited in the checkpoint and note)?
