Summary of Issue: Misunderstandings about the character of the techniques
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
I feel that there are ongoing misunderstandings about the character of the sufficient techniques. As long as one will read the techniques document from the beginning it should be clear enough. But we cannot "force" people to read the document in whole. If it is not possible to change the wording of "how to meet" one solution might be: adding a note before every single block of techniques.

Proposed Change:
Adding a note for every block of techniques. Example:

Sufficient Techniques for 1.1.1 - Non-text Content

The "sufficient techniques" listed below are considered sufficient to meet the success criteria; however, it is not necessary to use these particular techniques.

Sufficient Techniques for 1.2.1 - Audio-only and Video-only (Prerecorded

The "sufficient techniques" listed below are considered sufficient to meet the success criteria; however, it is not necessary to use these particular techniques.

(Even if the document will not look very "nice" after including these notes, it will hopefully improve a better understanding of the character of the techniques)
