Think we need some leeway here and there, but keep it very simple, like:


  *   Seems like a simple / plain, 100 point with 60% baseline system, might do the trick to keep it clean.


  *   For the AAA like-ish (best practices) you could add bonus points to it (clear but limited set!)
  *   And have a sort of severe / critical issues / Non-Interference musts (subtract points?! clear but limited set!)

Result like:

  *   Basic score: 73%
  *   Bonus points: 20/100 (namely the following methods: ... and ...)
  *   Critical issues: NONE

One problem I see is that 60% (even 75%) sounds like there would already
be MANY possibly grave accessibility issues -- when you add AAA criteria
and best practices to such a site, these won't go away. I would imagine
some sort of minimum conformance baseline should be set independent of
extra things - aspects now at AAA - and I find it dubious that you would
be able to improve one overallscore by these (possibly non-essential)
