Hi,

I'm getting the feeling that at least some of us are getting a little closer
on the whole acccessibility issue. Because that debates is is so huge (in
amount of mail, importance, gap between views, and even some overheating here
and there), I thought it might be useful to try to index those aspects on
which some sort of agreement appears to be forming.

So I've created a new wiki page listing what I perceive to be accessibility
aspects on which agreement seems to exist, or within some reach. See
<http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/AccessibilityConsensus>.

Note that, although I made one or two exceptions, I on purpose did not try to
list all arguments, pros, cons, proposals, disagreements. The main point of
the page is to try to make visible what we do agree on. Because that risks
getting buried inbetween all that other mail... (Also, I find all those wiki
pages that try to list every little thing that's been said on the subject
very hard to digest. I meant to keep this one simple, so it provides a clean
overview.)

Btw, due to the immense list traffic, it  may well be that there is far less
agreement than I thought. In that case the page can easily be destroyed again
;)
