Not sure I understand your question - but the sufficient techniques have to
respond directly to the success criterion requirements.  In this case -
things to do when the content/server detects an error by the user.   (some
of these look preventative rather than responsive.  Those are good ideas but
not required by success criterion.

Follow?

Hmm. I guess we need to say something like

"Providing a text message that identifies the field as mandatory"

These are all meant to identify what suggestions to provide, and would
presumably use the same techniques as GL 2.5 L2 SC1 to report to the
user. Should we explicitly refer to the error reporting techniques from
that SC?
