A possible solution to issue 1363 would be to split the guidelines up into:

a) a part aimed at non-specialists. This document could provide less detail
and maybe be stricter as to what is allowed to err on the safe side.
b) a part aimed at more technical web authors which provides more detailed,
technical guidance.
