Conformance Paragraph Revision

Relates to comments received on Issue 1358
(http://trace.wisc.edu/bugzilla_wcag/show_bug.cgi?id=1358)


The current wording doesn't seem to acknowledge that both computer and
human testing could be used for some success criteria.  So the following
is suggested as an edit.  


Current: The WCAG Working Group also believes that all WCAG 2.0 success
criteria are testable. Some can be tested by computer programs while
others must be tested by qualified human testers. When multiple people
who understand WCAG 2.0 test the same content using the same success
criteria, the same results should be obtained with high inter-rater
reliability.

Proposed replacement for second sentence above: 
Some can be tested by computer programs, some must be tested by
qualified human testers, while others may be tested using both.

So it then reads

Current: The WCAG Working Group also believes that all WCAG 2.0 success
criteria are testable. Some can be tested by computer programs, some
must be tested by qualified human testers, while others may be tested
using both. When multiple people who understand WCAG 2.0 test the same
content using the same success criteria, the same results should be
obtained with high inter-rater reliability.
