The following is a proposed list of requirements for the General
Techniques document.  This will help us in drafting and reviewing the
General Techniques to make sure they do what we want them to.  Comments
and suggestions welcome.
1.    The General Techniques must offer concrete strategies that can be
implemented in a wide variety of technologies to satisfy specific
success criteria
2.    Each General Technique must clearly indicate what is required  for
conformance to the SC it applies to
3.    Each technique must provide at least one clear example 
4.    Each general technique must be testable (support at least one
checklist item)
5.    The General Techniques must be clearly written
a.     Readable at or below 9th grade level (Flesch Reading Ease score
55 or higher )
6.    The General Techniques must serve the same diverse audiences as
the Guidelines
7.    Each General Technique must provide links to relevant
technology-specific techniques
8.    The General Techniques document(s)  must stand in clear relation
to other documents in the WCAG 2.0 collection
