It should be made clear in the Introduction how to distinguish normative
content of WCAG2.0 from non-normative (informative?) content, such that
any particular content of WCAG2.0 is explicitly identified as either 
normative or
  non-normative, but not both.   Please
  access QA SpecGL Requirement 07 [1] - "use a consistent style for
conformance requirements and explain how to distinguish them" for more
information.
