Finally done chomping my way through 2.7 - here is sc 2.7.7 for your

2.7.7 (former 4.7.6) Configure Set of Important Elements: The user has 
the option to configure the set of important elements for structured 
navigation, including by element type (e.g., headers, list items, 
images). (Level AAA)

Intent of Success Criterion 2.7.7 (former 4.7.6) :
All users are not the same, all devices are not the same. What may be 
important for the efficient interaction of some users are not important 
for others. In this case, user agents should start with a general set of 
elements that may be important such as headers, list items, images, and 
like but enable the addition or removal of elements from this list as 
the user wishes.

Examples of Success Criterion 2.7.7 (former 4.7.6) :
John is on a low income and cannot afford both a general computer and a 
television. In this case, John accesses the Web via his digital 
television and uses a remote control to do this. By allowing John to 
customise the elements which are important to him, the embedded browser 
developers have helped John have a more fulfilling browsing experiences 
and speeded up his interaction with the web content he finds useful.
