The baseline is defined in the guideline itself.   The other document is
just a longer form of it with examples - a tutorial if you like.  It doesn't
(shouldn't) define it further than in the guidelines so it shouldn't be a


Will check this out with format people though to be sure.   If you see a key
part of the definition that isn't defined in the guidelines doc please let
me know so we can include it.    Tried to only put the definitive stuff in
the guideline and leave explanations and background to the baseline doc.

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

(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
