I have an action 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2006/12/07-wai-wcag-minutes.html#action03> to 
propose a reword of the paragraph on sufficient techniques in the 
Conformance proposals introduction 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2007/01/conformance-revs#conformance>. Here is 
my proposed rewording for the paragraph beginning "For each success 
criterion, there is a list of techniques deemed by the Working Group to 
be sufficient to meet the requirement." Michael

    For each success criterion, there is a list of techniques deemed by
    the Working Group to be sufficient to meet the requirement. For each
    sufficient technique, there is a test to determine whether the
    technique has been successfully implemented. If the test(s) for a
    "sufficient" technique (or combination of techniques) are passed,
    then that success criterion has been met. It is not necessary to
    pass all tests for all techniques, only for at least one sufficient
    technique per success criterion. It is also not necessary to meet
    the requirements of the success criterion using the techniques
    identified as sufficient in the documentation provided by the
    working group. There may be other techniques, which are not
    documented by the working group, that would also meet the success
    criterion. When using such externally provided techniques to meet
    WCAG requirements, it is important that they be created and
    documented by individuals or organizations who are expert in the
    requirements of WCAG 2.0.
