Hi Tina,

When the world is globalizing more, an UN-organisation is not a bad choice 
to maintain one mondial accessiblity law for internet/software/applications. 
It should garantuee that everywhere the accessibility requirements are the 
same.

It cannot be that a company in Timbuktu can deliver websites for a Dutch 
company based in the Netherlands and Dutch accessibility law will not be the 
legal law, but that what is in Timbuktu.
But in the EU this principle of homeland law where the service is based, has 
already been proposed. (the Bolkenstein-guideline)
