Summary of Issue: Removal of Testability Requirement for certain elements
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
After reading the \"Testability Costs Too Much\" article (http://www.alistapart.com/articles/testability), I have come to the conclusion that testability should not be a requirement for all guidelines.

Proposed Change:
Allow certain guidelines to be without a \"testability\" requirement, as these \"soft\" guidelines are often very useful to Web designers and encourage people to create more user-friendly pages, even if the guidelines are somewhat subjective.
