Since I took these minutes, I will try to answer.

First, there was the idea of creating an appendix that would contain the 
GPs that seemed to be related to workflow and possibly a GP to cover the 
WCAG concerns - that is, a GP that said something like, Address 
accessibility, I18N, device independence, security when writing a 

Rather than an appendix, we may want a section 3, (after the Guidelines) 
called Beyond Conformance.  This section would contain the GPs that pertain 
to items that are part of creating good quality specifications, but don't 
have much to do with conformance - specifically, many of the GP in Section 
5 Quality Control

5 GP C is related to 2.1B since writing sample code can be a way to 
illustrate by example.  5 GP C also should be moved somewhere in Section 2 
(I think).  It doesn't get moved to the appendix, since it isn't workflow

Yes, it would be a new section or new appendix at the end of the 
document.  It would be Informative text and contain no requirements.
