I think that the principles given are the complete set, although I have a
nagging feeling I forgot one. So I am expecting at most one more similar
instance.

I expect some participation from the audience - people who write
applications are not fools, although by and large they have never run
across accessibility (any more than the people we cite in the 'explain
accessibility in help files' checkpoint). I think what we are striving for
is a document which can be read and give somebody a terse but accurate
explanation of what needs to be done. I think we should also outline some
strategies which could be used, but I would prefer them to be in a
separate techniques document.

  WL:: How many similar instances are proposed?  Enough to warrant yet
  another document?  Or perhaps a major expansion of the Introduction? 
  Need guidelines serve as be-all/end-all exemplars of completeness or can
  we assume some participation from the audience?
