I am trying to comply with 3.2.4. Please see the sttatement below at  http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/navigation-mechanisms-link.html
"The intent of this Success Criterion is to help users understand the purpose of each link in the content, so they can decide whether they want to follow it. Links with the same destination should have the same descriptions (per Success Criterion 3.2.4 ), but links with different purposes and destinations should have different descriptions. Because the purpose of a link can be identified from its link text, links can be understood when they are out of context, such as when the user agent provides a list of all the links on a page."
I already meet 2.4.9. Does this mean by default I meet 3.2.4, or there is some extra work to be done to meet 3.2.4?
3.2.4 makes a references to G197 for links to be at the bottom of the page as well as the top.
Is 2.4.9 a "Sufficient Technique" to ignore G197, or do I still need the links?
