A new working draft of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 was published on the 24th of June, not had a chance to look at it yet but sure to be worth a glance.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0

Ian comments: I recently attended a face-to-face WAI WCAG 2.0 Working Group meeting, and as a result had a good long trawl through them. There is still some work to be done on these guidelines, and also the supporting documents (e.g. techniques documents) - the key thing is that it is a working draft. The final version may change from this document - be aware. However, the general feeling is that having a broader ‘core’ level for people to achieve (with extended measures for those that want to make the effort) will be better than the current three levels - many site owners currently find that a simple failure to achieve Bobby AA (priority 2) means that they have no incentive to try to attain AAA level. After all, you cannot claim ‘This site has A and AAA compliance, but not quite there on AA’. Version 2.0 of the guidelines will be good for addressing this.
