If conformance with a success criterion  depends on it - yes.  It would fail
twice.  Once for relying on a technology not in the baseline, and once for
triggering the failure.   If the content can conform without the technology
(and it doesn't interfere) then it could still conform.

Hi group,

as I understand the "Understanding WCAG 2.0" document, the "sufficient" 
status of a technique depends on the baseline. So for a success criterion
with one sufficient HTML technique and one sufficient scripting technique an
author could use the scripting technique to meet the SC if both HTML and
scripting are in the baseline, whereas he has to choose the HTML technique
if only HTML is in the baseline.

What about the common failures? Does a scripting common failure make the
code fail the SC even if scripting is not in the baseline?
