I've just post my opinion about where web developer responsability end and where vendor responsability start.
This is no my world, this is what is also promoted by norms like ISO (eg. Future ISO 9241-171 and, probably 9241-151)

    Again, and let me repeat for the last time. 
    
    What guidance does the group want to provide to authors in these cases. 
    
    In my world, the context that authors work within has a real impact on
    the decisions they make. Standards are important. Software is imperfect.
    What happens in the interim is a real concern. 
    
    Please tell me about your world. 
     
    
    Cheers,
    Bob

        The specific reference here is related to use of <embed> with Flash.
        Recently, there has been activity around creating code that embeds
    Flash
        content in a page that follows standards. From a validity
    standpoint, it
        works great. However, there is a negative consequence here, this
    valid
        markup renders the Flash content inaccessible using that screen
    reader.
        After a few chats with the AT maker, it is clear that a simple fix
    is
        not forthcoming.  
       
    Roberto:
    that's all folks!
    Here in Italy we said: "o Mangi la minestra o salti dalla finestra" (you
    must eat the soup otherwise go through the window).
    So you confirm that is an user agent issue, not a web content issue.
    I hope the Vendor will find a solution before 2006.
