Interesting thread - oddly I came across an issue in testing only yesterday that illustrated it perfectly. I've taken it as a failure of 1.3.4 as the image is fine (the text is beautifully clear at all sizes), until you go mobile landscape but that's not actually a valid failure condition as you can reorient.

I should have considered it as 1.4.3 but the cause is the change of position when going from portrait to landscape. At a practical level it is easier for the customer to understand orientation as the issue that needs a fix than contrast.
