Some suggestions for extending the discussion for the following two BPs:

======

[URIS] Keep the URIs of site entry points short

How does it help especially users with disabilities?: Users with  
motor disabilities who type URIs using the keyboard or use voice  
input, or who have dyslexia, may experience difficulty when entering  
long strings of text. Long URIs can also confuse screen reader users  
as the page URI is often the first thing they hear. Keeping the URIs  
short can help these groups of users. This BP deals with an aspect  
not considered in WCAG 2.0.


[VALID_MARKUP] Create documents that validate to published formal  
grammars

How does it especially help users with disabilities?: Assistive  
technologies used by disabled users can provide more accurate  
presentation of pages that validate to published grammars.

Yeliz.
