Hi there,

I was assigned ACTION-475 'Create definition of 'benefit accessibility' 
or reword all SC in GL 3.3'

So this is what I've come up with.

"Features which benefit accessibility fall into two groups: (1) those 
features which have been explicitly created to aid accessibility, 
possibly in an attempt to follow guidelines such as these; or (2) those 
which assist accessibility but emerge from other functionality not 
originally created for accessibility purposes. Further, these 
accessibility benefits may be explicit such as the ability to control 
the User Agent from the keyboard; or implicit such as the ability to 
style a page based on a user supplied style sheet."

Cheers
Si.
