Hi all,

After reviewing the WCAG 2.0 Last Call, I'm glad to say I don't have any
major concerns from a UAAG 2.0 perspective. I think the "accessibility 
supported" concept is a good one that puts a nice focus on the role of 
the user agent. (http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/#accessibility-supporteddef)

Here are some other thoughts:

Conformance: I think listing the user agent tested on should be required
for increased transparency.

1.1.1 - Media, Test, Sensory - Suggest breaking this complicated bullet
into it's 5 parts

1.4.1 - Not sure Note 1 is necessary...other forms of perception are
covered in several places including later in 1.4: "Note 1: This Success
Criterion addresses color perception specifically. Other forms of
perception are covered in Guideline 1.3."

2.3.1 - Ed: "Web pages do" link

2.2.5 - Exception needed for unsubmitted data? as in ATAG 2.0

3.3.4 - Maybe make more general by including examples as e.g.s - as it
stands sending emails unlikely to be included
