Care should be taken that in going above and beyond in designing to 
increase accessibility for certain users with disabilities, problems 
aren't inadvertently introduced in such designing which may reduce 
accessibility for other users with possibly different disabilities 
(side-effect).   Research involving a broad sampling of users may 
provide background information to lessen the possibility of unintended 

Also, there should be checks to make sure that emerging technologies can 
in fact be feasibly and practically used in methods supporting 
guidelines which already exist.  If a method cannot be constructed using 
an emerging technology to test whether a guideline has been satisfied, 
what is the relationship of that technology to the guideline in terms of 
conformance (e.g., not applicable, pass by default, or what) ?
