Shouldn't it answer the question what is the Web Accessibility 
Initiative rather than what is this page I have landed on?  It seems 
we have to define the entity the website represents to provide the 
context for the site. The purpose is for the site is to support the 
mission of the entity so we must define the entity, contextualize the 
purpose of the contents of the site. Maybe we are saying the same 
thing just different words....
