We have had several requests to include benefits for people without
disabilities in our guidelines.  

We have always decided that it was inappropriate to start pushing usability
or design for other reasons in the guidelines.

 

Once we have the guidelines out however, we might consider this as a section
in the HTM doc.  Not in the regular benefits section - but as its own
section at the bottom titled "side benefits of the success criterion." 

 

Don't need to decide now - just putting it out there to think about.  We can
talk about in a month or two.    We get this request quite regularly.  And
always decided no in guidelines.  But HTM ..  Well   don't know. 

 

I'm signing off on this topic for a couple months but you can post thoughts
anytime.
