Hi Detlev and all

I'm in agreement with Detlev that the Failure should stay in.  I find that as an evaluator, failures are essential to have something truly testable and be able to provide evidence to the website owner of why something needs to be changed.  The draft Detlev has provided seems to be heading in the right direction, IMHO.

I just drafted a failure for SC 1.4.5 and 1.4.9:

SC 1.4.5 and SC 1.4.9 so far have no associated failures.

The aim of this failure (as for failures in general) is to have
conclusive evaluation criteria for as many WCAG success criteria as

The failure surely needs more work. Any comments?
