However, nobody today is going to build two separate versions. And the 
whole idea of "here's a separate site for 'the disabled'" has long been 
abandoned in favour of inclusive single-site solutions.

Yes, approaches needed to make modern web applications (sites that are 
not merely static content/documents, but actual systems) accessible are 
increasingly complex, but that's because these sites themselves are 
increasingly complex.
