John, you seem angry here. All I said was that no rationale was given, because,
well, no rationale was given. I'm happy to consider requests that have
rationales. I just need to know what the rationale is.

If it's just a matter of explicitly mentioning the visually impaired and hard
of hearing, that's fine by me. That wasn't stated before comment 4, which is
all I was asking for.

Just out of interest, is there any particular reason we should mention those
who are visually impaired but not those who are colour blind? How about those
with dyslexia; should they not also be explicitly listed? It's unclear to me
how you are deciding which categories should be listed explicitly, and which
should just be handled by the "those with other physical or cognitive
disabilities" catch-all. If you could provide a general guide as to how to
decide this, it would be infinitely helpful in making further edits less
offensive to you and others.
