The table itself is not a reference but a map to the correct reference, in my opinion.  But we are happy to do the update according to group decision.  Please let us know what that is.  We have placed the new tables but they are empty and will be filled in when we know to do one of the following:

Hi Sharron,

How about for now leave the Analysis one with the handles/short phrase, but do the other ones without. That way you can go ahead and do the restructured tables now, with the simpler option. If we decide to add the handles, we can do that later.

Maybe we want to do even more to group those SC at different levels that have this relationship (e.g,. the colour contrast ones)

One idea is to leave out of these tables, since they are include in the details (e.g., http://www.w3.org/community/wai-engage/wiki/Accessibility_Responsibility_Breakdown_-_Analysis )
