Opera also allows you to disable Javascript, CSS and a variety of other
features, but I don't see you baying for them to be dropped.

You've made my point for me - at the end of the day all feature
implimentation is in the hands of the user, either directly (via settings on
browser) or indirectly (by using a different browser). So there's no problem
implimenting features that _might_ in some circumstances have a potential
accessabilty problem, as the user can just not enable them (and the users
we're talking about in this instance are exactly the demographic that _will_
take the time to find out how to make their browser do what they want)
