Just for the record:

"Minister for Finance and Deregulation Lindsay Tanner and Parliamentary 
Secretary for Disabilities Bill Shorten said the Rudd Government had 
endorsed new website accessibility standards, the Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0."

and

"The Rudd Government is developing a National Transition Strategy for 
the move to WCAG 2.0 which will form part of the National Disability 
Strategy to be released later this year."

Government Guidelines from AGIMO don't seem to have been updated as of 
Feb 2010, but are expected to be during the year.
