If this is true then what is the value of the SC?  

 we are in effect saying    
"The few targets That qualify HAVE to be larger or people can’t use them, but it’s okay if the vast majority of the targets on the page do not qualify. It is not important for people to be able to access those. Those can be small and the person can still use them fine (for some reason we don’t state)  OR   people don’t need to access links in text.

 The logic of this SC  completely escapes me. Either everything needs to be large in order for the person to use it or else nothing needs to be large because the person can use the smaller links in text so they can also use the other targets if they are the same size.

 and if you make the links and text this large than all of the text is very large

 this looks like we are trying to create an SC rather than we are trying to solve a problem

 if the person needs to have things better in order to hit them, then they need to have everything bigger or else they won’t be able to access everything.

What am I missing?
