The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Approval for
draft publication of WCAG-EM' (public) for Alistair Garrison.


---------------------------------
Abstract
----



 * ( ) accept this section as draft
 * (x) accept this section as draft with the following suggestions
 * ( ) I do not accept this section as draft
 * ( ) I abstain (not vote)
 priority [High]
Make the following sentence bold "It is primarily designed for evaluating
existing websites, for example to learn about them and to monitor their
level of accessibility."

Rationale: It is the only place in the whole document that the documents
actual purpose is defined - if you miss this sentence, you will not
understand the purpose of the document just from the text.

Priority [Medium] 
Remove ", which is addressed by the WCAG 2.0 techniques layer" from the
second sentence.  You do not need to use or follow WCAG 2.0 techniques.

Introduction
----



 * ( ) accept this section as draft
 * (x) accept this section as draft with the following suggestions
 * ( ) I do not accept this section as draft
 * ( ) I abstain (not vote)
 Priority [High]

"Web Page States" - should be "Web Page DOM States" - it is important to
tell the reader that it is the DOM which is changing, after the page has
loaded, not the web page (which could be construed as web page source
code).

Priority [Low]

Sentence "considerations that evaluators to apply", should be
"considerations that evaluators should take onboard when applying".

Sentence "result into conformance claims" should be "result in conformance
claims".

The phase is "result in", not "result into" - this needs a global replace.


---------------------------------
Using This Methodology
----



 * ( ) accept this section as draft
 * (x) accept this section as draft with the following suggestions
 * ( ) I do not accept this section as draft
 * ( ) I abstain (not vote)
 Priority [Low]
First sentence "evaluation of websites with WCAG 2.0" should be "evaluation
of websites against WCAG 2.0".

Incorrect grammar usage throughout "Required Expertise".

Step 5.c: Provide an Evaluation Statement 
Currently there is no difference between the official Conformance claim
text and what people put in the statement.  We cannot let people put
"Conformance level satisfied" - because in the majority of cases the
methodology will not allow this.
My proposal would be to change "Conformance level satisfied" to
"Conformance level evaluated" - with some boiler plate text to cover the
outcomes i.e. No issues where discovered, etc...
