I think this is an important and somewhat complex topic. The  
euroaccessibility group tried to tackle it a number of years ago, but when  
they disintegrated I am afraid their work was largely lost - although  
Giorgio Brajnik published some of the interesting stuff he did (and  
continues to publish).

I'd hate to see this group just overlap with the ER group.

Another area that I think we should be looking at is games and what they  
need. This really is a complex and important topic where we could  
contribute, and get buy-in and publicity. Have a look at the "hit testing"  
threads about canvas in the HTML5 group...

And another is looking at what TV offers today in accessibility, and where  
the gaps are between it and the Web, which I think would be valuable for  
the TV Web IG, who are likely to follow up in a way that many  
'traditional' W3C groups don't manage.

Cheers
