You may already be familiar with WAI's public comments in this area, which
are listed on 
	"Policies Relating to Web Accessibility"
under the US section on the ADA, specifically at
	"Brewer Statement before US House Subcommittee on the Constitution, 9 Feb
but that is a more general discussion with regard to cost.

You might also look at "Fact Sheet for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
and specifically at the question on "does it cost more to make a site

Although I may not be able to answer all your questions, I would be happy
to provide some more specifics over the phone, and am reachable directly at
the contact information in my signature block below.
