Jon: Rule 1.1.1 - discussed table

Jon: proposing Design & Repair rule sets

Jon: some rules may not be specifically spelled out in WCAG 2.0

Jon: like "no orphaned content"

Jon: would be recommendation (Repair) or minimum

Jon: would like to have them used in new but not necessarily legacy pages.

Rich: in large orgs, dev wants to know "When are we done?"

Rich: possibly "Strict Implementation"

Jon: one rule set for minimum/most important, another for Design/strict

Ann: "strict" is better label than "Repair"

Rich: agrees

Jon: what's the other option?

Ann: how about "Minimum"?

Group agreement: Minimum and Strict Severities

Rich: need to define difference
