‚ÄčIn our great rush to protect developers from lawsuits I would like to
point out that WCAG 2.0 took my right to legal protection away. Right now I
live in a country that has a policy that leaves me out.  Had WCAG stayed
guidelines and not pushed to become law that would not have been so bad.
Now that WCAG 2.0 got it did real harm. It invalidated Section 508 for
people with low vision.
