Hi all (especially Jutta),

My action was to "rework the metadata requirement proposal" (original
at: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2010JanMar/0077.html):

Here is my updated proposal re: these 4 success criteria:

B.2.2.8 Metadata Production: Authors have the option of associating
accessibility checking results with the web content as metadata. (Level AA)
Note: The metadata format that is implemented will dictate the nature of 
the associated results (e.g., low-level check results, high-level 
conformance claims, etc.).

The INTENT section will include further information about metadata for 
resource discovery.


B.2.2.8 Metadata for Discovery: If the authoring tool records the 
accessibility status of web content, then authors have the option to 
associate this status with the content as metadata to facilitate 
resource discovery by end users.
B.2.2.9 Metadata for Repair: If repair assistance is not provided during 
checking, then authors have the option to save a metadata listing of the 
web content accessibility problems to facilitate interoperability with 
external repair tools.
