On today's call, I took an action to deal with the following SCs and defined term to respond to comment OP06 ("...Can [you] make the criteria of 'important elements' more objective or easily definable?"):

-----

CURRENT WORDING:

1.9.1 Outline View: Users can view a navigable outline of rendered content composed of labels for important elements, and can move focus efficiently to these elements in the main viewport. (Level AA)
- Note: The important elements depend on the web content technology, but may include headings, table captions, and content sections.

2.3.1 Allow Direct Navigation to Important Elements: The user can navigate directly to important elements in rendered content. (Level AA)

2.3.3 Allow Direct Activation of Enabled Elements: The user can move directly to and activate any enabled element in rendered content. (Level A)

2.5.2 Provide Navigation by Heading and within Tables: The user agent provides at least the following types of structural navigation, where the structure types exist: (Level AA)
- By heading
- Within tables

2.5.3 Allow Elements to be Configured for Structural Navigation: The user can configure a set of important elements (including element type) for structured navigation and hierarchical/outline view. (Level AAA)

GLOSSARY: important elements: Elements determined as important by the user to facilitate the user's navigation of the content. UAAG 2.0 intentionally does not identify which important elements must be navigable because this will vary by user needs and technologies being used.

PROPOSED:

EDIT 1.9.1 Outline View: Users can view a navigable outline of the rendered content that allows focus to be moved to the corresponding element in the main viewport. (Level AA)
- Note: The elements reflected in the outline view will depend on the web content technology and may include: headings, table captions, and content sections.

EDIT 2.3.1 Allow Direct Navigation to Enabled Elements: The user can move keyboard focus directly to any enabled elements in the rendered content. (Level AA)
AND MOVE TO 2.3.2

EDIT 2.3.3 Allow Direct Activation of Enabled Elements: The user can perform an activation action on any enabled element in the rendered content. (Level A)
AND MOVE TO 2.3.1

EDIT (to match 1.9.1) 2.5.2 Provide Structural Navigation: The user agent provides at least the following types of structural navigation, where the structure types exist: (Level AA)
- By heading
- By content sections
- Within tables

REMOVE 2.5.3 Allow Elements to be Configured for Structural Navigation

REMOVE: GLOSSARY: important elements
