Unless this conversation has mutated quite drastically, I think the 
original point was that certain sites don't work in anything other than 
IE, full stop. We're not arguing for complete adherence to AAA or 
anything as idealistic as that, but simply to ensure that  a banking 
site lets you in and perform the basic functions, rather than being a 
completely "IE or nothing" approach. It's basic cross-browser 
interoperability, not ensuring every single guideline is adhered to to 
the letter.
