Re: thoughts from Jim Thatcher re the DoJ ANPRM

Interestingly my opinion is not too different. In my independent
responses uploaded (via a Word file) on Sept 19, 2010 to the DOJ on
the Proposed Rules,I noted:
"conformance level for ADA should be limited to 27 success criteria:
25 at Level A SC plus two specific Level AA SC.
While I agree that while all success criteria at Level AA enhance
accessibility, there are two SC that stand out, namely SC 1.4.3 and SC
2.4.7 that contain specifications for minimum contrast and for a
visible focus indicator respectively".
