Situation A: In this situation clarify whether scripts are part of baseline
or not

Response from Working Group:

Baseline has been changed to "Accessibility-supported Web technologies".
This is used when making a conformance claim and is not part of each
individual success criterion.  The How to Meet documents for each success
criterion provide techniques using different technologies which may be used
to meet the criterion. The techniques selected to satisfy the success
criterion are sufficient as long as they only rely on features of
technologies that are accessibility-supported

WCAG 2.0 provides a set of rules for evaluating whether a technology is
accessibility supported, but does not specify whether particular
technologies are or are not accessibility supported. The reason for this is
that accessibility support for various technologies is in a constant state
of change as new technologies are introduced and support improves for
existing technologies. Whether Script is accessibility supported for a
particular project would be determined by a variety of factors described in
the section " Accessibility Support of Web Technologies" at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/#accessibility-support .
