So what do you propose?  Adding on-screen link text regarding external
links and new windows would make the links verbose and increase the
cognitive load on people and almost would never be implemented.  Requiring
this would cause most companies to create an accessible version of a site
and non-accessible version of the site which is not something we want to
promote.
