I read the WCAG2 Draft last night and I like it for the most part, I really
love the idea of seperating techology specific checklists especially. 

Though I have some questions about how implementation is expected to occur
for some points. 

for Guideline 3.1 Level 2: Is there some conceptual design available for how
a developer can integrate word pronunciation, word meaning and idiom
meaning? Derivation meaning for abbreviations and acronyms is simple enough
in HTML with the appropriate tags. But how in the page structure will are
developers going to define the pronunciation and meanings of words?

for Guideline 3.1 Level 3: the vocabulary section speaks of Controlled
Language. In HTML where and how does one define what the Controlled Language
is? 

for Guideline 3.2 Level 1: how is change of context determined
programmatically? this seems like a very subjective point.


All the Guidleline 3 points, but especially 3.1 Level 3, look very complex
and at time subjective. Can someone point me to a group working on
programmatic identification of the points in Guideline 3? It looks like a
very interesting field.

Thanks,
