As a response to your comment, the QA Working Group has partially accepted your
comment.

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,
the QA Working Group has decided that SpecGL should mention the need to
  additionally consider internationalization and device independence while
  writing a specification. Accordingly, a new Section 3.3 (Accessibility,
  Internationalization, and Device Independence Considerations) has been
  created in the revised SpecGL draft [2]. Note that there is a reference to
  the XML Accessibility Guidelines within Section 3.3.
