That makes sense.

Links are "Components that have  functionality", are they not?

If you do that /and/ "Components that have the same functionality within 
a set of Web page are identified consistently", then you will pass 
Success Criterion 3.2.4. If you "template your page" but "Components 
that have the same functionality within a set of Web page are [not] 
identified consistently", then you will fail.

I don't see the significance of this difference for Success Criterion 
3.2.4. Please explain your thinking.

After a /very/ brief look at the two homepages, I'm personally more 
impressed by disability.gov.
