Hi Stefan,

It's in the Introduction [1]:

"Note that all techniques are informative. The "sufficient techniques" 
are considered sufficient by the WCAG Working Group to meet the success 
criteria. However, it is not necessary to use these particular 
techniques. If techniques are used other than those listed by the 
Working Group, then some other method for establishing the technique's 
ability to meet the success criteria would be needed"
