We didn't get to these areas on the last telecon.

It was asked how we felt about something called "content-type specific.
2.2.4
Item 3 says "A target WCAG conformance level (e.g. single-"A", 
double-"A", or triple-"A") that the creator of the benchmark is claiming 
the Web content would conform with if all of the benchmark requirements 
are met." is a sentence whose subject is "level" has no verb.
More importantly, it seems that the author is going to become ensnared 
in process matters because "...each level needs its own benchmark 
document." It sounds like some bureaucracy must be invoked in order to 
"claim compliance" in addition to achieving the compliance.

   (item 4?)
Grammar nit: the word "criteria" is used throughout and should be 
"criterion".

And we didn't finish dealing with the Introduction.

1.3 The italicized sentence "Everyone should have the ability to create 
and access Web content" is tersification at its best and it deserves a 
place on the masthead of this document.

The final paragraph of this section contains "... but still require a 
captions for audio information due to a noisy workplace. Similarly, a 
person working in an eyes-busy environment may require an audio 
alternative to information they cannot view." In addition to the grammar 
nit ("a captions" should drop the "a") there is the constant attitude 
that this is all connected to "working" and "workplace" which isn't a 
broad enough situation.

1.4 Final sentence "The guidelines both parts include the following..." 
makes no sense.

Love.
