Hi,

Hmm. Content/delivery units is/are encoded with certain technologies, 
according to WCAG's definition of technology ("Technology means a data 
format, programming or markup language, protocol or API"), but in this 
principle we mean "user agents, protocols and APIs", not data formats or 
markup languages. The semantics of "technology" are too ambiguous.

Regards,

Christophe
