draft response for purpose of controls

Thank you for your feedback. 

The conventional name are required only for the  items listed in the definitions (or appendix in the next WD). We will try and clarify that in the understanding section and the techniques. For now please see an example page for worked examples. 

There is an ARIA module WD to support this and there are other more mature methods you can use, such as HTML5 autocomplete and Microdata. However, as these techniques are not supported in all formats such as PDF, we have limited the scope to mark up languages like HTML. 
If you want you can look at our draft techniques at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YiknHDDDdKBdwVTEpxwUpyCaQL_tnpp9CfDlFjCq16E/edit#
By the time we leave CR we are committed to all SC have  working websites and implementations in a few different platforms (or they will 
be removed from the final draft) and full techniques for compliance. Please see https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/WCAG_2.1_CR_Exit_Criteria for the details.

Note that this success criteria only requires programmatic identification, so that AT can identify the element and provide addition support (such as adding symbols or autocomplete). We are not requiring any specific text to be seen by the user or be used as the item label. So they do not need to be understandable by users. 

Please also note that the list of items in the appendix are not the attribute values themselves, just a list of items that need to be identified via any specification that you choose to use. We did however edit the definitions in our next working draft to make them more consistent. At this point it is too late to add more terms but we will consider them for subsequent versions. You are also invited to submit your suggestions to the personlization task force by opening an issue  for them.
We hope that answers your concerns.

All the best

Lisa Seeman
