Yes Jason.  We feel the example is implicitly covered by the current definition and this a method of making it more explicit.

See Andrew’s previous email about ‘normative’, but I would say it is a normative difference between 2.0 and 2.1, it isn’t changing 2.0.
[Jason] Are you saying that the Web-based publication mentioned in the proposed example wouldn’t be a set of Web pages under WCAG 2.0? I do have problems
 with using an example to change the scope of a definition; the only way to do that is to change the text of the definition itself.
When I read the proposal, however, it seemed that the example was merely illustrating what is already covered by the definition and so it would not constitute
 a change to the meaning of “set of Web pages” at all. I also note that a publication contained in an archive would not be covered; as stated in my earlier post, that’s still a problem, and if anyone thinks that this archive issue is resolved by the current
 proposal then there is a need for further work and clarification before endorsing the change recommended in this CFC.
