A discussion of allowing granular conformance claims may involve possible
issues of complication of the WCAG2.0 conformance model, an additional
"dimension of variability" (with resultant interoperability concerns) among
  conforming WCAG2.0 offerings, and a reduced incentive for offerors to
claim full AAA compliance as currently stated in WCAG2.0.

QASpecGL [1] does not, according to my investigation, mention or define
"granular conformance" (definitions are provided for "conformance", 
"conformance
claim", and "strict conformance"), but does describe an Implementation 
Conformance
Statement, which may be of some use in a discussion of granular conformance.

Thanks and best wishes
