Summary of Issue: Spec's HTML Web pages have many accessibility warnings?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Ironically, the WCAG spec's Web pages have many accessibility warnings. Shouldn't the Spec be a shining example of zero errors and zero warnings? For example, on https://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/visual-audio-contrast-contrast.html, there are 152 warnings about issues like color contrast and the links missing ID or name attributes.  I may be wrong but I think assistive technology such as NVDA or JAWS would have a tough time narrating the WCAG Spec's pages.

Proposed Change:
In your source markup, include attributes that will generate in the HTML the needed ID or name attribute for anchor elements.  Also double check your contrast ratios in shaded text.
