Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Defintion of \"programmatically determined link context\" refers to \"sentence\".
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
There is no semantic markup for a sentence and no programmatic way for a screen reader to determine a sentence in HTML, so its better not to use that term. A screen reader should be able to handle the other techniques involving parent element text, element attributes, and element relationships.

Proposed Change:
Drop requirements involving sentence parsing.
