I didn't ask which Success Criterion was applicable, I asked which you 
thought /might/ conflict. Answering my question would involve you 
reading the list of Success Criteria and asking yourself the simple 
question of whether each one might conflict and why.

For instance, do you think -

"1.4.1 Use of Color: Color is not used as the only visual means of 
conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or 
distinguishing a visual element."

- might conflict with blocking HTTP requests by IP or referrer and, if 
so, why?

Is it your intention to ask the same formula question ("Does X conflict 
with WCAG 2.0?") of this Interest Group for every single design decision 
your company makes with this website, or do have special reason to think 
that blocking by IP or referrer would reduce the accessibility of your 
website to people with disabilities?
