Excellent post Gregory,  I might simply add that any "statement" made in
association with a site also clearly state the date that the assessment was
done, along with the caveat that the statement refers to a "snapshot" of the
site that day: in today's web environment a site that meets all conformance
criteria on Monday may not by Friday, and if you are planning on putting
*your name* on the bottom line you need to be clear on this point.
