I think the latter is correct .

I think we need to make clearer the fact that we disagreed with making
normative requirements on this subject. So I propose to add below:

> The QA Working Group agrees with the request of the WAI CG that SpecGL 
> should mention the
> need to consider accessibility while writing a specification

... but disagree with making this a normative requirement in SpecGL,
since its scope in this version of the document is mainly focused on
conformance related items and that QA WG participants don't have enough
background and experience to add further requirements on this topic at
this stage of development.

In addition to accessibility,

rather than "desires", I'd put "has decided"

I think doing a personalized response with a link to new GP 11 would be
better.
