[Jason] If it's implemented at the user agent level then software user interface guidelines would be more relevant (and perhaps a combination of WCAG + WCAG2ICT and UAAG). I wouldn't wish to be prescriptive here, and, admittedly, I haven't looked at UAAG 2.0 (currently a Working Group Note) in any detail.
