Here are a couple of comments about some of the techniques for UAAG
Checkpoints 1 and 2:

Under 1.2 Activate event handlers, we reference DOM Level 2 but not DOM
Level 3, which now has descriptions for text events and keyboard events. We
even have a reference about DOM Level 2 not having a key event, which we
need to replace with a DOM Level 3 reference.

Under 1.3 Provide text messages, we need to add a technique about allowing
non-essential alerts and text messages to be optional (turned off by the
user if desired).

Under 2.1 Render content according to the spec, we need to expand the
Example 2 technique about dynamic content changes. Users need to have an
option to know when content has changed and where the changes are in
additional to having access to the changes when they happen to navigate to
the content that has changed.

Everyday that we leave behind  goes on to tell the truth, of how we lived
in the line between the two.   Mark Harris
