Another issue I would like to raise is the following: (and it seems to
apply, probably lots of times!)

IF the text of Methods for different techniques is 90% or even more (95%?)
the same, and the only difference will be the technical example of
implementation, will we end up with lots of duplicates / duplicate pages?

So when reading the Methods in WCAG 3 for a specific functional outcome
there are (example) 7 Methods with 7 times the same text (only to be
discovered when reading them.
That might be frustrating and bloating the document (a Heading Method for
HTML, PDF, iOS, XR, Android, Technology x, Technology y etc) while every
time the text is 90 / 95% the same.

OR

Different groups writing different interpretations for the same solution
and we end up with (example) 7 different texts for fixing Headings and the
reason why while only the implementation should be the difference.

Think we need to solve this also ASAP

Cheers,
Jake
