In discussions between WCAG Editors and EO representative - we discussed
moving the Checklist and the Mapping out of the appendix.

 

The Mapping would be moved so that it would not be locked in the guidelines
and could be updated as new techniques or better mappings are developed in
the future. 

On the call today the working group concurred with this view.

 

RE the Checklist

-          Now that we have the quick reference -

-          And because the guidelines are only guidelines and SC

 

The checklist is basically redundant.  It is no shorter than the normative
section of the guidelines and it is less useful than the Quick Reference.
Any checklist should also really allow note taking and be more of a tool. 

 

We are therefore thinking of removing the checklist from the appendix - and
implementing any checklists as developer or evaluation resources in
conjunction with EO or ERT groups.

 

Anything we should be thinking about counter to this?
