Dear WAI,

I need clarification on *2.3.1 Info & Relationships*.  Can you tell me if
my interpretation is correct:

I think it is possible to pass WCAG 2.0 SC 1.3.1 without using ARIA
landmarks.  As much as I love ARIA landmarks...I do not think they are
required in WCAG 2.0.

I always recommend them, but I don't currently have my team call a WCAG 2.0
 violation on SC 1.3.1 if ARIA landmarks are missing.


Thanks in advance for your insight (as you might guess, the Deque
Accessibility Experts are not in agreement in how to interpret this).

Best,
Glenda
