I think my point has been missed.  I was not, in fact, asking for advice.  I
was giving a use case with which I am intimately familiar (the large
enterprise) where in fact accessibility has a nontrivial cost, and
explaining some of the questions that I have to ask with respect to cost and
some of the data I might need, since many people seem to be opining that it
should cost nothing more than regular webpage production.  I believe this is
the sort of use case in which Lainey and the DOJ are interested.
