We've had comments asking why our Conformance Claims section is not 
labelled "optional". We don't say it's mandatory, so I always thought of 
it as optional, but to synch with WCAG 2.0 we could do the following:

(1) Reword "Conformance Claims" => "Conformance Claims (Optional)"

(2) Add this text after: Required Components of an ATAG 2.0 Conformance 
"Conformance claims are not required. Authoring tools can conform to 
ATAG 2.0 without making a claim. However, if a conformance claim is 
made, then the conformance claim must include the following information:"
