Comment Type: general comment
Summary of Issue: Testability
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Not all things are testable. It\'s as simple as that, really. Why try and force such a thing when it is simply not of that nature?



Sure, it would be great to be able to have an easy, well-defined way for people to make sure their site is accessible, for legal compliance or whatever the motivation. But unless there is a way to practically do it, while still archiving the intended goal, then it is pointless.



Perhaps we need to accept that for the moment, there is no way to put such things down on paper. Not everything needs to be a specification for it to work.

Proposed Change:
Remove testability from the guideline. Leave enforcement for another day.
