It is important for WCAG guideline drafters to understand that most 
businesses treat accessibility something like paying tax, i.e. something 
they have to do to stay legal, but something where the legislation needs 
to be scrutinised for loopholes, to minimise their need to actively 
comply.  The spirit of WCAG guidelines will not be followed, only the 
letter.

This can be difficult, as it is not possible to produce objective rules 
in many areas of accessibility.
