Would the inclusion of "baseline" as a component of WCAG2.0 conformance as 
detailed in the referenced document be consistent with (not violate) the 
following W3C QA SpecGL requirements (in particular QA SpecGL Requirements 
8,9,10):

(1) QA SpecGL Requirement 5: Define the terms used in the normative parts 
of the specification [1],

(2) QA SpecGL Requirement 6: Create conformance labels for each part of the 
conformance model [2],

(3) QA SpecGL Requirement 7: Use a consistent style for conformance 
requirements and explain how to distinguish them [3],

(4) QA SpecGL Requirement 8: Indicate which conformance requirements are 
mandatory, which are recommended, and which are optional [4],

(5) QA SpecGL Requirement 9: If the technology is subdivided, then indicate 
which subdivisions are mandatory for conformance [5], and

(6) QA SpecGL Requirement 10: If the technology is subdivided, then address 
subdivision constraints [6]?


Thanks and best wishes
Tim Boland NIST
