And only a small part of WCAG 2.0 is actually machine-checkable, as it's 
about success criteria focussed on outcomes, rather than how those 
outcomes have been achieved (and which is why there are multiple 
techniques for each SC, and even then they're not exhaustive and there 
are likely many more variations - achieved in different technical ways - 
that still allow the SC to pass).
