Thanks for explicitly looping me in on this Michael.  CAV is an issue near and dear to my heart.  I commented in github too, but I actually do not agree with this addition since I actually think it is a feature that CAV need not be labeled as such.  OTOH, the idea merits debate.

We considered this same situation when addressing the new Authoring Tool template requirements in Revised 508. I think some guidance on labelling and location is appropriate, and this seems pretty solid.

On a quick review, it appears well written and carefully specified to me, with desirable additions to the existing definition.

Currently, The requirements for a conforming alternate version are laid out in the glossary definition.  However, there are two big things missing from these requirements in my opinion:

1.      There’s no requirement to actually label a link to a conforming alternate as such, and thus how would the user know?

2.      There’s no requirement to tell the user what is altered so they can judge whether they need such a version.

I filed this a few weeks ago on GitHub and hoping to get some more quick feedback: https://github.com/w3c/wcag21/issues/306<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fw3c%2Fwcag21%2Fissues%2F306&data=02%7C01%7Cjjwhite%40ets.org%7Cdadefbea13cc403611c908d4da7b0f27%7C0ba6e9b760b34fae92f37e6ddd9e9b65%7C0%7C0%7C636373669448458991&sdata=RRL1NMHwAQS75ib%2FhIoVOeZuH8xnkoN3Dr1ODvUJgFk%3D&reserved=0>

And here’s the new definition being proposed: http://rawgit.com/w3c/wcag21/label-conforming-alternates/guidelines/terms/20/conforming-alternate-version.html<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Frawgit.com%2Fw3c%2Fwcag21%2Flabel-conforming-alternates%2Fguidelines%2Fterms%2F20%2Fconforming-alternate-version.html&data=02%7C01%7Cjjwhite%40ets.org%7Cdadefbea13cc403611c908d4da7b0f27%7C0ba6e9b760b34fae92f37e6ddd9e9b65%7C0%7C0%7C636373669448458991&sdata=6J2AYuSAY4Li6%2FWxwYn5Pokl%2BvvSL29sYh8xGjh%2FK5c%3D&reserved=0>
