This seems reasonable enough. Without such a stipulation, if there is
a default version, it need not conform to WCAG at all, which means
that users who don't have an appropriate profile or whose user agents
don't support the required content negotiation techniques will receive
a version that is more likely to be inaccessible to them.

If there is no default version, i.e., failure to negotiate properly
results in an error, then I maintain that the conformance claimable
should be the highest of that achieved by any version of the content.
