It is clear in wcag that it is a set of guidelines.  Anyone who takes it to
be something else is miss informed.  508 was based on the guidelines in part
and many other pollicies are based on them as well.

Not true. Not true at all, David. I do not object to guidelines. I
object to guidelines that are not understandable and impractical.

If WCAG is just a set of guidelines, then what to you consider to be
standards or policy? Section 508?
