I've created a working copy to allow quick updates [1], prior to  
incorporation in the editor's draft.

As the most obvious part to start at is the beginning, I've begin by  
adding THEMATIC_CONSISTENCY [3]. My first attempt isn't very inspired as  
there does seem to be a relationship except with 11.4 [2] on alternative  
pages. How does THEMATIC_CONSISTENCY assist users with disabilities?  
Comments and more ideas please.

This BP encourages content providers to make content accessible to as wide  
a range of devices and users as possible. It contemplates the use of  
alternative pages only as a last resort. In this respect it relates to  
WCAG 1.0 checkpoint 11.4, “If, after best efforts, you cannot create an  
accessible  page, provide a link to an alternative page that uses W3C  
technologies, is accessible, has equivalent  information (or  
functionality), and is updated as often as the inaccessible (original)  
page. [Priority 1].” In MWBP the alternative page or URI is to provide for  
device limitations while in WCAG it is to provide for user limitations.
Not complying with this best practice but complying with WCAG checkpoint  
11.4 will be very difficult as each new device-specific version will  
require 2n versions of the content.
