Although Rich S. has an action item from [1] to propose
rewording for the checkpoint on input device independence, I'd
like to submit the following proposal:

Checkpoint 1.1:
   Ensure that all functionalities offered through 
   the user interface may be operated through all
   input device APIs supported by the user agent. [Priority 1] 
          Note. User agents are not required to 
          support all operating system input device APIs.
          However, they are expected to support all 
          standard input device APIs (e.g., mouse and
          keyboard for desktop computers, touch screen 
          input for kiosks, pen or keypad input for
          small devices, etc.) Refer also to checkpoint 6.1. 

Checkpoint 6.1:
   Use the standard input and output device APIs supported 
   by the operating system. [Priority 1]
