	1. Review WCAG 2.0 Guidelines from UAAG perspective.

WCAG 2.0 uses the UAAG definition (instance 2) of 'user agent.' WCAG 2.0
assumes that user agents support all the technologies in a defined baseline.
The definition of user agent support derives from UAAG. There is significant
overlap between presumed functionality within user agents and perception,
operability, understandability, and robustness of the content. As a basis
for discussion, I will be posting a table tomorrow showing the user agent
requirements (UAAG Guidelines and Checkpoints) necessary to render content
according to WCAG 2.0.

	2. UAAG and WCAG allow conformance claims. These conformance claims are
interrelated. A user agent is not required to satisfy every requirement in
UAAG to claim conformance. A claimant can establish a baseline of
functionality in the user agent, narrowly defining the ability of he user
agent to render specific content and the functionality provided to the user.

Can WCAG 2.0 assume that specific functions provided by a user agent (render
alternative text) be separate from a specific user agent (NewUserAgent 2.6)?

Should there be a statement(s) in WCAG 2.0 for each appropriate guideline
that there is a corresponding UAAG guideline necessary for the accessible
rendering and interaction with the content described?

Should WCAG 2.0 baseline conformance claims be based upon user agents with
specific UAAG conforming functionality as required by the WCAG content? That
is WCAG 2.0 "Guideline 1.2 Provide synchronized alternatives for multimedia"
presumes that a conforming user agent meets UAAG "2.5 Make captions,
transcripts, audio description available"; "4.4 Slow multimedia"; "4.5
Start, stop, pause, and navigate multimedia; and 4.6 Do not obscure
