<MAS>...</MAS> = more substantive than editorial comment

PRINCIPLE A.1: Authoring tools must facilitate access by assistive
technologies
- "Guideline A.1.1 [For the authoring tool user interface] Ensure that
Web-based functionality is accessible."
<MAS>It's only after reading the other guidelines in A.1 that I understand
why this is a distinct guideline rather than assumed to be covered by the
others under this principle. Can we clarify the rational for why guidelines
are divided into web-based v. non-web-based ?</MAS>
- "Guideline A.1.3 [For the authoring tool user interface] Follow the
accessibility conventions of the platform."
<MAS> would like to hear more about Reed's concerns about this guideline's
rationale as it makes sense to me</MAS>
- "A.1.3.1-2 Follow and Cite Conventions"
<MAS>Is it really necessary to *site* conventions at any level? If it's a
convention, it seems to me it doesn't need to be spelled out
explicitly.</MAS>
