I added the link to the w3c specification,  that is  the first Accessible authentication technique. It is in the  comments of the issue.


my 2 cents if these  COGA SC (Such as Accessible authentication) do not go in,  then WCAG 2.1 will be a joke, because we will know, when we publish, that conformant content will not include or be useable by people with cognitive disabilities. It will not be inclusive content.


A basic question we need to ask is if we need wcag to enable content to be accessible to people with any cognitive disabilities, and is that an important thing. 




If we do, we need to find ways to include this stuff, we need to change the focus from saying no to finding solutions to make this work and include them. 


If we don't we are wasting our time. we may meet our deadlines but we will achieve little else .  Please do not suggest moving things to AAA. It is insulting to the user groups excluded.

All the best
