 Jason proposed

<propose>
Any minimum set of technologies assumed to be supported in and enabled by
user agents for the purpose of evaluating conformance to these guidelines.
</propose>


I think this is pretty good.   I'm not sure the user agent enables the
technologies.  And we should make it clear that we aren't evaluating the
user agents.  So a couple grammaticals edit may be needed.  Maybe something
like 

<propose>
Any minimum set of technologies assumed to be supported and enabled in user
agents for the purpose of evaluating conformance of web content to these
guidelines.
</propose>


I also think we should add the following two notes for clarification and
context.

NOTE 1: Some examples of entities that may set baselines that an author may
have to follow include the author, their company, a customer and government
entities. 

NOTE 2: In the techniques document we plan to discuss techniques for
conforming to WCAG 2.0 based on three different baselines (i.e. assumptions
of technologies supported and active in user agents).
