A few thoughts (first two (of four) are editorial:

"1.) Conformance Level: One of the following
conformance levels of conformance must be met. [2220]"
Suggested wording:
1.) Conformance Level: One of the following levels of
conformance must be met. [2220]
===
Under 4.) Accessibility-Supported Technologies:
"Any information or functionality that is implemented
in technologies that are not accessibility supported
must also be available ..."
Suggested wording:
Any information or functionality that is implemented
via (or using) technologies that are not accessibility
supported must also be available ...

===
"6.) Complete processes: If a Web page that is part of
a process  does not conform at some level, then no
conformance is possible at that level for any Web
pages in that process." 

Suggested wording:
When a series of Web pages present sequential steps 
that need to be completed in order to accomplish a
task (or an activity), conformance at a particular
level  may be claimed only if all Web pages in the
series conform at that  level. 
===

Use of Bronze, Silver, Gold:
I suppose usage of these terms has been debated at
length. Yet it feels like one is aspiring for an 
Olympic medal!
Personally I would be comfortable withLevel1, Level 2
and Level 3. (or Level-1 (Minimum), Level 2 (Medium)
and Level 3 (high)
