Hi,

OK.  Just to be clear.  According to the 2.0 guidelines it is OK
for Amazon to have multiple versions of the same web page in order
to meet the various guidelines.  The problems with the alternative
web pages are that they probably don't have the same URL and that
the alternative web pages don't meet the guidelines.

This means that the issue they french blind people brought about
ghettoizing is not a concern addressed by the standards.
