Why don't apply the "old" wcag 1.0 checkpoint 8.1, saying what is an accessible "object"?

    Oggetto: [#1065] Provide a link to download an accessible plugin
    
    
    The following is a proposal for HTML techniques. I will implement the proposal in a draft unless there is objection from the group. There will still be room for debate of the proposal in the context of the next draft.
    
    Guideline 4.2 [1] says "At least one plug-in required to access the content conforms to at least the default set of conformance requirements of the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 1.0 ... If inaccessible plug-ins are available, then a method for obtaining an accessible plug-in is provided from the content."
    
    We should include a technique to provide a link to download an accessible plugin viewer. This also corresponds to U.S. Section 508 paragraph m [2].
