So you mean in WCAG2.1 some provisions will be raised from  AA to AAA   or   A to AA?

You cannot change a normative part of a standard after it has been issued.

There has been some discussion of a new  WCAG 2.1 — and some discussion in that about raising some of the provisions from AA to A   or AAA to AA

but going from AA to AAA would be lowering an SC’s level
