I think that anyway this ("often required by law") is something that 
people probably already will know by the time they get to read this 
document. It's something to put in the Overview page [1] I think.

I think that this paragraph should address differences of approach only 
as it affects the purpose of this document. We shouldn't be trying to 
"sell" accessibility here.
