Summary of Issue: 
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Under Level of Assistive Technology Support Needed for "Accessibility Support" list item 1 says: Accessibility support of Web technologies varies by environment
- In a company where all employees are provided with particular user agents and assistive technologies, Web technologies may need to only be supported by those user agents and older assistive technologies. 
- Content posted to the public Web may need to work with a broader range of user agents and assistive technologies.
"

I think the "older" is incorrect in the first bullet. I think it should be deleted. (because the point is that if users are known to have certain AT, then you do *not* have to support older AT, yes?)

To further clarify, consider adding it to the second sub-point.

Proposed Change:
...Web technologies may need to only be supported by those user agents and assistive technologies.

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