I don't think anybody was suggesting that only things that can be tested 
automatically should be in WCAG. Indeed, many SCs of current WCAG 
require "manual testing" and expert human judgement, and even Wilco's 
original message included these (under "Conformance testing").

The discussion, however, was about requiring SCs that can only be 
passed/failed based on user testing (i.e. where just having one or more 
expert auditors is not appropriate/sufficient to make a determination).
