It's fairly well known, that most of the official sites of the members
of W3C are syntactically inalid and that most commercial sites, in
general, have very poor accessibility characteristics.  Designers are
commissioned to create a brand image and that brand image requires that
every control have a distinct look and feel.  They are working for the
brand owners, not for the people who try and access the sites.

It's also can be difficult to get statistics, as the people most affected
have the least appreciation of the technology, to know what could be done,
in the first place.
