Is there specific verbiage similar to what 508 has for equivalent facilitation?

Okay, so how about:
CC-Gold, Above and Beyond:  Content that conforms to advisory techniques or other best practices.

> 2 Non-conforming Content: It is recommended that even non-conforming content conform to the extent that it can.

That is nice too, but it is not the problem I am highlighting.  

I am suggesting a way for content owners to claim credit for going beyond what is recommended for A/AA/AAA.  I brought up the example of robust Lynx compatibility.  Other examples would include providing primary information via video sign language or writing at a second grade level.
