For sake of argument, let us assume we go with the most liberal (i.e.,
potentially least accessible) of the proposals:
<blockquote>
1. Conforms at level 1 where controlled 
2. No 3rd party content is controlled 
</blockquote>

Is there still the expectation (for WCAG 2.0 Single A claim) that the
aggregator explicitly provide a mechanism for the 3rd party content to
be accessible (even if it is not forced).  For example, if an aggregator
allows uploading of photos, must they provide a text field for ALT
value?  If an aggregator allows uploading of video, must they provide a
means to provide synchronized captions?  If so, is this a separate SC or
part of the conformance scoping?
