Gregg is correct here. If you want something to be included in WCAG
2.0 conformance claims, it has to become a success criterion, which
implies in turn that it has to be reliably testable. WCAG 2.0 does not
restrict whatever else authors may publicly state about the accessibility of
their content; but any such claims will not be part of the WCAG 2.0
conformance.
