What concerned me was your statement that "@summary is a required 
attribute of the RGAA 2". Even if the technologies used are limited to 
HTML/CSS/JS, WCAG 2 doesn't mandate any particular use of attributes as 
long as the success criterion is fulfilled. Is the text of RGAA 2 
already publicly available, or still in draft? Just out of general 
curiosity :)
