I didn't see anything in this message about whether or not people thought
other people would try to make triple-A sites, but that was all I saw in
responses. So I did a bit of searching (nothing very careful, just some
random playing with a search engine) and came up with the following:

Assistive Tech - http://www.assistivetech.net

Assistive Technology Centre, Indiana University - Bloomington -

Texas Water Board - http://www.twdb.state.tx.us/

These were three of the first four I found. I am not sure that I agree with
all their claims, but they have all clearly thought about what they are

And best of all the GSA (some kind of US government agency -
http://www.gsa.gov is their home) has a website that provides links to look
for sites claiming conformance:
http://w3.gsa.gov/web/m/cita.nsf/RefLib/WCAGLogos - so you are free to follow
the links and find sites for yourselves.
