Generally it's the same stuff that makes other stuff inaccessible,
people are just more likely to do it with scripting  I think.

I see no reason for this restriction, are there any AT's that are
actually harmed by the above, I can't see any real scenario, okay the
new DOM element may not be very noticeable by the AT and User, but
that doesn't necessarily automatically harm accessibility.

Again, I don't see the point of the restriction, for example storing
all a load of emails in a script, doesn't all of a sudden make your
document inaccessible, it just makes it quicker for the user to get to
those emails if they support the script.
