I've finally made my way through the WCAG2 and all the supporting documents 
and may have an understanding of what it means. There are a couple of things 
that struck me as a bit odd so I thought I should bring them up before the 
comments period ends.

1) Here's an example file that has poor contrast and no title yet seems to 
be level 1 compliant:
http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/docs/file1.html

The SC for titles is level 2 - (SC 2.4.3 Web units have titles)
There is no level1 SC for contrast.
I think this file would pose accessibility problems for many people. Would 
the rest of the group rate this file as level 1 compliant?

2) Here's an example that fails level1 because the form does not use 
fieldset and legend to group the checkbox selections:
http://checker.atrc.utoronto.ca/docs/file2.html

I think many people would find this form is quite accessible.

SC states "1.3.1 Information and relationships conveyed through presentation 
can be programmatically determined..." and lists the fieldset and legend 
technique.

Is this a correct conformance rating (fail level 1) for this file?

Cheers,
Chris
