Item Number: Understanding Success Criterion 2.4.10
Part of Item: Intent
Comment Type: editorial
Summary of Issue: section headings (SC 2.4.10)
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Since this criterion primarily concerns with meaningful or semantic organization of the content rather than syntactic organization, the main issue related to this criterion is on the understandability of section headings. 

It is stated that \"but visual presentation is not sufficient to identify document sections\", which indicates SC 2.4.10 focuses on an issue that cannot be resolved with regard to perceivability. 

In addition, according to the second note in SC 2.4.10, namely, \"Note: This Success Criterion covers sections within writing, not user interface components\", this criterion does not intend to focus on an aspect of physical interaction. 

Proposed Change:
Add a guideline for understandable navigation (e.g., Provide descriptive titles, labels, and headings to help users find content) in Principle 3, and move SC 2.4.10 under the new guideline. 

See also the same proposal for SC 2.4.2, 2.4.4, and 2.4.6.
