Comment (including rationale for proposed change):
The success criteria a are not stable in the future, and do not capture everything that you need to do. They are the testable aspects of current conformance
I think this limitation needs to be emphersized. Specicly
Success criteria by themselves do not necciraly mean that the piont of the giudline was acheived
Why not putting rules of thumb in the guidelines themselves? Success criteria are only measurable aspects of a rule of thumb.
People should not turn success criteria into a checklist whilst ignoring that.
The success criteria need to be testable or else people cannot tell when they have conformed to the success criteria and thus WCAG 2.0. The document states that more can be done than the SC and provides advisory techniques to that end. We have added more advisory techniques to cover recommendations for which we have not been able to develop testable success criteria. We have also clarified in the introduction that even satisfying all success criteria will not meet the needs of all people with all disabilities.
