An furthermore...

[In writing up the response to the commenter, you may find this line of
reasoning worth including.  Use or forget it ad_lib.]

In the presence of certain classes of AT the impact could be as low as a P3
equivalent, but the presence of this AT cannot be assumed in rating the
checkpoint.  OK?

Note that one has to assume the presence of AT in order to say that the
detrimental effect is only at a P3 level.  That is not an appropriate
assumption for the purposes of placing a priority on the checkpoint.  Although
the conformance mechanisms allow any constellation of products to be included
as the subject of the claim, the checkpoints are rated first and foremost on
the premise that the subject is a mainstream, mass-market product.

Sorry, we don't have the priority-and-conformance language capability to get
more subtle than that.  See also the nacent "UA capabilities" thread in the
content guidelines work.
