I was sorry to discover that this version didn't include the attempt to banish "programmatically determined" from the success criteria.  Is there a list of edits someplace?  Are the resolutions available apart from the general meetings minutes?  Thanks.

In particular, is the discussion where it was decided to move four success criteria from 4.2 were moved to 4.1 available?  I think I like it, but that was a bit of a surprise.

Might "use technologies according to specification" become a success criteria now instead of a guideline?

I understand why, but the 4.1.x references to "Web content" (versus just "content" elsewhere in 4.1, and throughout the rest of the other success criteria) still seems awkward.  For example, 4.1.4 reads, "The content... in the Web content".  Other sc use "delivery unit" in similar context.  (I really dislike the DU term in general; but in for inch, in for a mile, as they say.)  On the other hand, why not replace "delivery units" with "Web content" throughout?

I am sorry I didn't ask before, but why not break 4.2.2 into two success criteria?  This is the only sc with two distinct pieces (they even have numbers, 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2).
