With one exception (discussed below) I am satisfied that the WCAG working
group has correctly interpreted, and resolved to my satisfaction, the issues
raised in my comments on the May 2007 public working draft.

When I wrote my comments, I did not consider the exception detailed under
guideline 1.1 in relation to CAPTCHA to be an acceptable compromise, there
being no such exception in WCAG 1.0. Nothing in the working group's response
to this comment provides any grounds for altering this view, and the working
group's stance on this issue remains a retrogressive step in regard to the
level of accessibility afforded by the guidelines. Consequently, I cannot
endorse such a compromise and the working group's decision to add an
informative note to the draft explaining the situation does not address the
issue that I raised, which goes to the normative content of the document as
specified in the guidelines and success criteria.
