I am about this close to registering a formal complaint to the W3C regarding
this entire tone and lack of respect - these are the people we are
entrusting to author and design the next generation of web markup?

Hey Lachlan (JERK!), regarding your question

"<Lachy> why is it that when accessibility advocates can't come up with a
rational argument, they always fall back to the legal stick?  "

Here's your rational argument: all humans are equal, and they should be
treated as such.  Any argument that attempts to counter that basic tenet is
simply irrational, and in most countries, illegal.  The day you actually
understand that, instead of simply paying lip-service to it, you will no
longer need to ask such stupid questions.

Smell that!
