A. WCAG 2.0 Guidelines  Nits:

In retrospect, from my printed copy, I could not find in the 
preceding, the meanings of
the [I] or [V]

Guideline 1.2 Provide synchronized alternatives for multimedia.

Many ephemeral TV broadcasts do not deserve more than whatever 
concurrent captioned text
there might have been.

B. WCAG 2.0 Checklist Nits

Per section 4 of the W3C Patent Policy, Working Group participants 
have 150 days from
the title page date of this document

     [actually, shouldn't it refer to WCAG 2.0 document date]

to exclude essential claims from the W3C RF licensing requirements with respect
to this document series. Exclusions are with respect to the exclusion 
reference document,
defined by the W3 Patent Policy to be the latest version of a 
document in this series that is
published no later than 90 days after the title page date of this document.

My concerns are:

1. Only Working Group participants have the right to exclude essential claims.

Few W3C Member Organizations are unrepresented in the Working Group.

2. The extra 90 days seems to permit retroactive claims.
