I suspect that universal will not often be accomplished, because people won't
take the time to ensure that everyone is catered for in all circumstances.
But many people will do their best to do so, and an important part of that is
providing a semantically rich version of content, so that the simple
transformations people use a lot have something to work on, and those who are
prepared to produce new and useful methods to transform content have
something to work on.

  I think I would give less priority to a semantically rich version
  because it doesn't seem that the number of people in the general
  disabled community who get into transformations would justify th
  expenditure of resource.
