The WCAG Working Group sometimes determines that a success criterion 
would be much more easily met if only user agents supported a given 
feature. Because we only document techniques that are known to yield the 
accessibility benefit intended, we tend to have to create "workaround" 
techniques that we consider far less desirable. We are starting a "wish 
list" of user agent features that would make all our lives easier - the 
User Agent Push 
<http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=User_Agent_Push> list.

We'd like to know from UAAG if a similar list exists, or if it would 
make sense to collaborate on the development of such a list. We'd also 
like to work through the UAAG WG on encouraging user agent developers to 
implement some of these features. Would there be interest in this?
