"Edge case" is a term I see used far too often, a trivialization of problems 
observed by real people. It may be de-motivating, but for those who have no 
choice but to live in what devs call "edge-case" scenarios, little is more 
frustrating than to hear that it isn't worth enabling accessibility to those 
with handicaps simply because they are part of a minuscule minority. Not 
everyone has a choice to be a member of a majority.
