Re: CFC: Numbering WCAG 2.1


I won't object as Michael said that to de-emphasise the numbers would
be technically complicated and more work. And I know we have a hard
deadline to meet.

However, I think Alastair's model [1] would be much more usable for
people learning WCAG. Maybe we need to think about Priority of
Constituencies. For instance the HTML5 Working Group addressed it for
HTML5. [2]

I agree with Alastair. We may need to revisit this in the future [3].

Kindest Regards,
