I am working on proposals for the glossary terms that we deferred from last
week.

accessibility supported
conformance
conforming alternate version
satisfies a success criterion
technology (web content)

These terms were previously blocked until we dealt with conformance. Last
week I had proposed that we not comment on these terms but it was pointed
out that even though these terms are fundamental to conformance, they are
sometimes referenced from the success criteria.

I'm stumbling over the first one - accessibility supported.

I can think of replacement terms for "web content technology" in the
definition itself. But Notes 2, 3, and 4 are about conformance or
conformance claims which we have agreed we won't be commenting on.

Does anyone have thoughts on how we deal with these notes about conformance
given that WCAG2ICT is not a standard that something can conform to?
