For (c) in excerpted message following, where is the hard measured evidence 
that CSS2.1 "as a whole" is not "widely supported"?  I'm not sure what this 
exactly means ("as a whole" and "wide support"?)..  It says in the front of the 
November 6 2006 Last Call CSS2.1 Working Draft that "CSS 2.1 represents 
a "snapshot" of CSS usage: it consists of all CSS features that are implemented 
interoperably at the date of publication of the Recommendation."   Are you 
talking about "accessibility support" or "support in general"?   If the former, 
perhaps the language could be clarified?  If the claim is being made as stated, 
then it should be documented exactly which "features" (sections or subsections 
of the specification - their definition) of CSS2.1 provide accessibility 
support and which don't?

Also minor typo in (c) - "content -to- be inaccessible"

Thanks and best wishes
