This sounds right, but there are occasions when there's nothing to do,
but there is still a comment. For example 1.4.1 [1] Use of Color,
there's nothing to do but there is a comment about how "the
accessibility guidelines specify the ways that color may be used". I
think this can be worked around in editing the document and making
some exceptions like putting a "something" list and then a brief
"Nothing, but beware" list. Or simply removing these comments if
they're not really useful, or promoting them to "something" status.
