Thanks for this.

Makes me wonder if we need to consider this kind of partial  
conformance, or exceptions which when applied still enable  
'conformance' in principle. I expect that government or whatever will  
just take conformance to guidelines as a requirement for software  
purchase (as it's easier), which may not be applicable to many UAs.

Cheers
Si.
