Ah. Somehow I missed your link-- I think I was quoting from a message
that responded to yours. Sorry. 

To clarify, however, you were quoting from the current working draft of
the HTML Techniques for WCAG 2.0, and not from the current working draft
of WCAG 2.0 itself.

And we owe you thanks for discovering a mismatch between the current
wording of the success criterion at Guideline 1.1 Level 1 SC1 and the
wording in the HTML technique for images usd as links.
