Hi Sailesh,

Thank you for your suggestions on the Evaluation Suite. I've added your suggestion to consider evaluating content in the context of security applications to the changelog of the "Specific Contexts" document [1].

However, it seems to me your first two points are debatable. Applications provide functions that perform functionality, do they not? Anyway, we will look further into this on the next round of updating later this fall.

For instance, the accessibility issues  for login  to an online bank or for making electronic purchases or opening an account are peculiar to  such content  and may not be experienced elsewhere in the application.
