One thing that troubles me about the WCAG 1.0 to WCAG 2.0 mapping is how often success criteria get re-referenced.  I don't have a suggestion for changing this since the approach used is the most comprehensive and accurate way to compare the two documents.  There is also the very positive aspect that the re-use demonstrated how much more broadly applicable are the 2.0 SC as compared to the 1.0 Checkpoints.  The notes make additional reference to checkpoints, but I did not count those here.

Summary of SC re-use in Appendix D.

SC 2.0	tally (iff > 1)
 1.1.1 	 3
 1.2.2 	 2
 1.3.1 	 8
 1.3.3 	 3
 1.3.4 	 2
 2.1.1 	 5
 2.1.2 	 3
 2.4.1 	 2
 2.4.4 	 4
 2.4.6 	 2
 3.2.3 	 2
 3.2.5 	 3
 4.1.2 	 3
 4.2.1 	 6
 4.2.2 	 2
 4.2.3 	 2
 
I have been working on a 508 to WCAG 2.0 mapping that cuts down on the redundancy, but it is more an approximation.  Please drop me a line if you would like a look, just be forewarned that it is very much a draft.
