At the moment I disagree with this. If we sing the song, we must dance the 
dance.

We've got to start somewhere and the contention that our focus is almost 
entirely on accessibility as a blindness issue has *some* validity. Harvey 
and I are the only ones around this outfit who are actual experiencers of 
the main population of PWD: the aging. There is another group that has 
almost no experiential representatives so we must speak up about people who 
*NEED* illustrations.

This will help in an undertaking to define/understand/clarify/collect/+ 
appropriate guidelines for the selection of appropriate not-just-decorative 
graphical materials. Stuff like this becomes icons (which are made through 
usage, not born).
