I know of contracts being written that say "WCAG double-A" or "WCAG triple-A"
as a condition of the contract. As Jonathan, Anne and others have pointed out
illustration and graphics are important (although these are often required
anyway, and for many designers the challenge is to do them accessibly). Even
requiring WCAG level-A in a contract is a start.

If you have experience in applying these contracts, then you may be able to
produce valuable feedback for the guidelines group (email to
w3c-wai-gl@w3.org is archived at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl if you want to see what they
have got).

Cheers
