Yes, I agree. So a -1 for that idea I'm afraid. V interesting thread.

My 2 cents are we should try to (as a community) move away from 
'accessible this' or 'accessible that' and just encourage devs to build 
stuff that just works.

I think the term 'accessibility' or even 'design for all', 'inclusive 
design' or 'Universal Design' are all just temporary milestones on the 
road to achieving that goal.

Some day 'accessibility' will just be invisible, a default part of 
quality design and best practice.

My 2 cents

Josh
