Item Number: conformance-reqs
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: editorial
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In the discussion of baseline and conformance, it seems that there is potential for misuse of baseline (e.g. authors might be able to just declare their own level of technology). The actual/potential audience, not just perceived/target audience or what developers wish they could reply on, should define baseline. 

Proposed Change:
EOWG recommends that the WCAG WG re-consider the following strategies: to give guidance on what is a realistic baseline for most Web sites today, W3C should publish a \'reasonable/realistic\' baseline recommended for a general audience, outside of the WCAG 2.0 normative document, with an explanation about why the particular baseline is recommended; and it should update this recommended baseline annually or periodically.
