Hello,

I'm reading the User Agent Guidelines (a rare treat!). The
priority statements are not correct with respect to
the recent change in conformance. The current wording
(e.g., for Priority 1):

<BLOCKQUOTE>
This checkpoint must be implemented by user agents 
as a native feature or through compatibility with 
assistive technology, otherwise one or more groups 
of users with disabilities will find it impossible 
to access information. Satisfying this checkpoint is
a basic requirement for some individuals to be 
able to use the Web.

I propose the following change:

otherwise one or more groups of users with disabilities will
find it impossible to access information. Satisfying

some individuals to be able to use the Web.
