At least one version of the content meets all level 1 success
criteria.: Where does baseline fit in this?

Proposed Change:

Clarify baseline requirements

Response from Working Group:

We have completely rewritten the conformance section of WCAG, and we now
discuss web technologies that are accessibility-supported, rather than
baselines. SC 4.2.1 has been removed from the success criteria and
incorporated into the conformance requirements: "4.) Alternate
Versions: If the Web page does not meet all of the success criteria for a
specified level, then a mechanism to obtain an alternate version that meets
all of the success criteria can be derived from the nonconforming content or
its URI, and that mechanism meets all success criteria for the specified
level of conformance. The alternate version does not need to be matched page
for page with the original (e.g. the alternative to a page may consist of
multiple pages). If multiple language versions are available, then
conforming versions are required for each language offered. The conformance
requirements also specify "Only documented accessibility-supported Web
technologies are relied upon to meet success criteria. Any information or
functionality that is implemented in technologies that are not accessibility
supported must also be available via technologies that are accessibility
supported." So the mechanism used to obtain the alternate version must now
only rely on Web technologies that are "accessibility-supported". And there
are defined criteria for what can be called "accessibility-supported".
