<MichaelC> Review of Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation
Methodology 1.0 <https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/20120816misc/results>

Michael, we are taking a few ninutes to read...

Feedback on critical issues to address in this version:

This note reads very prescriptively for an informative document. If it
is meant to be normative, the task force should recharter.

Many concerns about language restricting this methodology to entire web
sites. This goes beyond WCAG.

Presentational issues: editor's notes; insufficient descriptions for
diagrams; lists difficult to read.

Normative references to content on ER web site.

"Key" or "primary" functionality

Requirement, conformance language should be softened.

<greggvanderheiden> refresh your screen to see my latest notes

<greggvanderheiden> they are at the top of my notes

<greggvanderheiden> I fell off and can't get back on

<greggvanderheiden> Ciao for now

"Key" or "primary" functionality could be misused. "Commonly used"?

Need to clarify the scope of this effort, because of WCAG's concern that
this not become the only accepted methodology for evaluating WCAG
conformance.
