Dear Wendy,

Thanks for your comments on the Last Call version of the QA Framework:
Specification Guidelines[0] - 22 November 2004

After two weeks from now (on May 18, 2005), the lack of answer will  
be considered as if you had accepted the comment.

Original Comment (Issue 1083 [1]):

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

The QA Working Group acknowledges that the WCAG1.0 and WCAG2.0
documents are very different in style, and that mapping between
  WCAG1.0 Checkpoints and WCAG2.0 in such a way that would allow
  such Checkpoints to be marked as decprecated in WCAG2.0 would
  be indirect and difficult. However, the QA Working Group believes
  that the creation of such a mapping is important, because
specification users need to know the evolution of particular
  features from WCAG1.0 to WCAG2.0. The QA Working Group suggests
  that an appendix be created in WCAG2.0 with the mapping desired
  by the QA Working Group (indicated previously), showing and
  explaining the evolution of particular features from WCAG1.0
  to WCAG2.0; in such an appendix, the QA Working Group suggests
  to use whatever format is most appropriate in meeting the
  objectives of the appendix. The QA Working Group believes
  that such an approach mentioned previously would be consistent
  with 2.4.4 Deprecation in the revised SpecGL draft [2].
