WCAG next model 1 Pros Cons Observations and Comments
WCAG 2.0 + Extensions
  1. status quo, does not require charter changes
  1. vague on details
  2. confusing for conformance
  3. Current experience with writing Extensions has identified problems that would be better solved by changing WCAG - e.g. definition of web content precludes hybrid mobile apps, No Keyboard Trap -> No Navigation Trap.
  4. Very difficult for conformance tool vendors
