Awesome job, thanks Gregg.  And Wendy, the supports documents are excellent too.

I recognize that not all the reasons listed were substantive enough to be included as to why validity should be Level.  However, I believe these two should be included:

22.  The evidence is that the one-way statistical correlation between sites that are valid to those that are accessible is too overwhelming to be explained away by the hypotheses offered.

23.  Reasoning that support validity at Level 2 but not Level 1 can be used against most Level 1 success criteria.  Put another way, the majority of arguments that support validity as necessary for accessibility do not satisfactorily differentiate between Level 1 and 2.
