Response from the Working Group
================================
Thank you for catching this. We are editing the document as follows:

Web technologies may only need to be supported by those specific user
agents and assistive technologies deployed at a company. (These may be
older versions of user agents and assistive technologies or the very newest
versions).

Content posted to the public Web may need to work with a broader range of
user agents and assistive technologies, including older versions.
