thank you Thomas. My proposal for discussion in order to close this issue 
for LC is as follows:

Drop use case 1. We have not achieved concensus on a use case where people 
need to be helped by other people. 

Add the text proposed below, in lieu of use case 2.

Include use case 3. 

We will decided in the f2f this morning so that usecases can go to LC.

Per ACTION-308 and its duplicate ACTION-309, here's a paragraph to
add before section 6.1, to address this concern.  This could be
added instead of having this use case, since -- as we discussed
today -- basically any use case could have the disability aspect

                 The use cases in this document make no particular
                 assumptions about the capabilities and cultural 
                 of the user in question. [WCAG]
                 # The user may not be able to see, hear, move, or may not 
                 able to process some types of information easily or at 
                 # They may have difficulty reading or comprehending text.
                 # They may not have or be able to use a keyboard or 
                 # They may not speak or understand fluently the language 
                 which the messages are written.
                 # They may be in a situation where their eyes, ears, or
                 hands are busy or interfered with (e.g., driving to work,
                 working in a loud environment, etc.). 

The bullet point list is taken from the introduction to the WCAG REC
[1] (with slight adaptions), that I propose including in the note's
references section.
