2.5.4: This should be Level 1. Context sensitive help is very important to
people who use screen readers and people with cognitive disabilities.

Proposed Change:

Move to Level 1

Response from Working Group:

While context sensitive help is useful and sometimes necessary for people
with disabilities, the type and level of detail for context sensitive help
varies greatly depending upon the type and functions of the site.
Requirements must be applicable to all Web sites in order to qualify as
Level A or Level AA in WCAG 2.0.
Response from GSW:
Please see my comment on applicability
