You have successfully dealt with my old comment.

However SC 1.3.3 still needs help

<quote
cite="http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/Overview.html#content-structure-separation-understanding">

1.3.3 Size, Shape, Location: Instructions provided for understanding
and operating content do not rely on shape, size, visual location, or
orientation of components. (Level A)

</quote>

Problem:

This just tells you some visual characteristics that your 
instructions should not be
dependent on.

It leaves open situations that are just as bad that depend on the sound of the
element.  Or its motion.  Or its smell.

Make the injunction positive:

"Instructions shall include the text identification of components that they
tell users how to use."

Provide a definition of "text identification" in the glossary.

This is in line with the clarification of 1.1.1. and 2.4.6 that needs 
to be done.
