Accessify carries this entry:

IBM Worldwide Accessibility Director Frances West wrote an op-ed piece in
News.com raising what IBM sees as a red flag: the numerous new accessibility
policies in development within Europe. Titled "Accessibility could take a
step backward",
See: http://www.accessify.com/2005/07/copying-508-vs-raising-bar.asp

The news.com article is at:
http://news.com.com/Accessibility+could+take+a+step+backward/2010-1071_3-579
4513.html?part=rss&tag=5794513&subj=news

There are some quite interesting responses on news.com too.

Cheers, Andrew
