>From an administrative standpoint, I think Andrew has the better part of
this argument. Ultimately, the standard needs to be designed in a way
that encourages high levels of compliance.
As a firm believer in the "KISS" (keep it simple silly) approach to
regulation, the consolidation of web and software standards has the best
potential for achieving a simpler standard. Simpler standards are easier
to administer, because people are more likely to understand what is
required of them. As a direct result, the level of compliance
increases, as people are more likely to do things they understand.
