I have a few concerns with this draft:

- I noticed 2.4.7 was changed from Level AA to Level A. I apologies if I
missed the conversation on this. It's a little hard participating in this
group without attending the calls, but I try. I've brought this up in the
past though, and I want to repeat my concern. I do not think WCAG should
change existing success criteria in new versions. If AG agrees a change is
necessary, I think an errata is the right way to do this. (Please let me
know if you'd like me to explain this further.)

- The "success criterion" (and "guideline") text was removed from the
headings. This creates a document that is no longer explicit about what
things are success criteria. If we're removing this from the heading (which
I'm not against), we'll need to add a definition of success criterion, or
some normative section that says what is and what isn't a success

- In 1.4.13 the word "Dismissable" was changed to "Dismissible". Similar to
my first comment, a change like that should in my opinion be done in an
errata, not in a new working draft. Otherwise it creates different
variations of the same success criterion between different versions of WCAG.
