I'm going to state a position here:

1. The most that should be required by WCAG 2.0 is that there either
   exist a UAAG 1.0-conformant implementation of the technologies
   relied upon by the content; or such repair technqiues be
   implemented as to compensate for the shortfall of at least one
   implementation from UAAG 1.0.

Informative advice regarding user agent support should be provided in
techniques.

Widespread availability of implementations is desirable but should not
be part of any conformance requirement at least at level 1 and
preferably not at all.
