2014. In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific

Your comment on 2.4.7 Focus Visible: Any keyboard operable user
> Affiliation: AbilityNet
> Document: W2
> Item Number: Success Criterion 2.4.7
> Part of Item: 
> Comment Type: technical
> Summary of Issue: Promotion of 2.4.7 Focus Visible from level AA to
> level A Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
> I understand the importance, and the requirement, of making content
> accessible via the keyboard and so can see why SC 2.1.1 Keyboard is
> level A. It would seem to make sense to promote the similar SC 2.4.7
> Focus Visible to level A also; without a visible focus, the content is
> effectively unusable by the keyboard. 
> Proposed Change:
> Promote SC 2.4.7 Focus Visible from conformance level AA to level A

Working Group Resolution (LC-2876):
Thank you for your comment. WCAG 2.0 is a stable document and is not
undergoing this type of change.  We have added your comment to the list of
items which have been raised for consideration at some future point.  

Please review http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/wcag2faq.html#done for more
information on the status of WCAG 2.0.
