The dangers I see are:

1) this will reinforce the idea that the only disabled people are those 
that use JAWs.

2) it will probably have a similar effect to early mobile web sites, 
which tended to be cleaner, and easier to use that the main web site. 
That may mean that the main web site gets more difficult to use, and you 
won't be able to do the equivalent of using wap instead of www.
