Thanks for sharing these, they gave me ideas for improving the WCAG 2.0 presentation. I'll post an updated version soon.

I note that we are saying very different things, though -- not just in the wording, but in the actual meaning.
For example, you say: "A web technology is accessibility supported whenever (1) it supports the users' assistive technologies or (2) it provides its own supported assistive technology through user agents that are equally available to users with and without disabilities."
I'm saying: "Technologies that: users' assistive technologies support, *and* the accessibility features in users’ browsers and other user agents support" (I added the "and" after reading yours and going back and reading WCAG 2.0, so it's not in the version you have right now.)

Some differences:
- "or" versus "and"
- "the technology supports the users' AT" versus "the users' AT supports the technology"
- "the technology provides its own supported assistive technology through user agents..." versus "the accessibility features in users’ browsers and other user agents support the technology"

In order to have too many versions out there, I'm going to wait and posted my updated version until I do that edit through the entire thing. Could you take a look then at the revised section on accessibility supported technologies (hum, I keep wanting to hyphenate that...), and let me know what you think?

Best,
~Shawn
