Baseline - The section "Initial Guidance" is even more confusing than other
parts of the documents. There are no definitions or rules for following
baseline, just examples in this section.

Proposed Change:

Develop "A Guide for Policy Makers" and allow the public to comment prior to
releasing WCAG2 as a W3C Recommendation. Develop a document, for use with
WCAG2, that list suitable technologies for baseline. This document can be
updated by the WG or the W3C every year. Provide a definition for baseline.

Response from Working Group:

The conformance section of WCAG2 has been completely rewritten. The term
"baseline" has been replaced by "accessibility-supported Web technologies".
The issue of what it means to be an accessibility-supported Web technology
is addressed in the section "Accessibility Support of Web Technologies" at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20070517/#accessibility-support .
Response from GSW:
Thank you for taking my comment into account.
