Re: "Tests" section in WCAG documents.doc, how will conformance to WCAG2.0
  be objectively demonstrated, if not by passing
tests in a WCAG2.0 test suite that has extensive coverage?   Shouldn't such 
documentation be used as part of a WCAG2.0 conformance claim, not just to 
indicate successful
use of techniques?   If not, what will be the alternative?   What does 
conformance to WCAG2.0 mean
explicitly and in detail?

What  objective evidence will be provided for WCAG2.0 CR exit criteria of 
widespread support of the WCAG
2.0 specification?

Ref: SpecGL LC WD Requirement: Include a conformance clause (in Section 1:
Specifying Conformance):


What will be in that conformance clause that offerers can use to 
objectively demonstrate
conformance to WCAG2.0 specification (not just the WCAG2.0 techniques)?

Thanks and best wishes,
Tim Boland NIST
