Because 99% of sites will never implement the accessible version.  That was
the real advantage of HTML (which has to a large extent been lost) that
it tended to produce accessibility without a conscious need to design
for accessiblity.  (Obviously conscious design helps, but few designers
are prepared/allowed to do that.)

Incidentally, in terms of HTML's aims the need for multiple sites or a
higher level master script tend to indicate a failure in the language.
In particular, any higher level master script ought to be what is sent
to the browser.
