It could be a nightmare from a maintenance standpoint, but if they are
willing to (a) ensure that the HTML version is truly accessible (and
not just a "text only" site), and (b) ensure that the content of
both versions is kept up to date, then there's absolutely nothing wrong
with this idea at all, and may be a great way to have your cake and
eat it too.
