I only concur with this — if the supplement guidance does not use the word success criterion/criteria anywhere in the document. 

Calling things that are not SC     SC for which there is not yet concurrence or anything else like that is confusing and again implies that things that don’t qualify as SC are just SC that havent graduated yet.   It misleads the public and it misleads the working group and sets expectations that make it hard to fairly judge future work.  


Guidance is ok.   And even using “guidelines” is ok.

The idea is that success criteria proposals that cannot reach consensus or that there is insufficient time to review still have valuable information that might be able to be published for use. This idea was surveyed (https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/WCAG21_supp/results <https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2002%2F09%2Fwbs%2F35422%2FWCAG21_supp%2Fresults&data=02%7C01%7C%7C0e1bcac07c814137cfe008d4a1f37ca4%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636311514529786507&sdata=Z09nKmrz3%2BdDRAlSQIgS6EnTF3tnyKnkhx6IU63M3ds%3D&reserved=0>) and discussed on the call (https://www.w3.org/2017/05/23-ag-minutes.html#item01 <https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2017%2F05%2F23-ag-minutes.html%23item01&data=02%7C01%7C%7C0e1bcac07c814137cfe008d4a1f37ca4%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636311514529786507&sdata=fuNXCihUvTIK85l38EKARZUd1nbx6vv6mPMVhkv2TNg%3D&reserved=0>) and a resolution received consensus:
