so you want to stop it before it starts?  How commendable.  While
some of us need to Learn from exercises like this It was not the
intent to begin a denagrative topic of discussion.  I do have a
quetion though.  Some of the p 3 checkpoints are not implemented
so, how can they be validated?

I think this is a good accomplishment from the AFB and I applaud
their commitment to this issue.

It would be very easy for those of us on this list to play the
game of "oh, YEAH, is it REALLY triple-A?" and go poking around
the site looking for technicalities (instead of access barriers).

I suggest that while this is admittedly a fun thing to do, in
general we should refrain from such activities as it basically
amounts to attacking anyone who attempts to do something right --
aiming for triple-A compliance -- and attacking your own allies
for not being _perfect_, when the rest of the world isn't even
_trying_, is not the smartest way to see our dream of an
accessible web come true.

Sadly, I've seen it happen too many times here.
