I like the idea, although I don't think that verbal and conversational 
interfaces should have a special callout, as that implies that it would 
be the focus of new technologies we are addressing.  We certainly want 
to include them, but not to the exclusion of others.  It brings too much 
attention to them, IMO.

How about this language?

These guidelines will address technological and cultural web 
accessibility requirements. These guidelines strive to anticipate where 
the web and other internet technologies are headed so that the 
guidelines can continue to evolve.
