FWIW, the PDF/UA (ISO 14289) committee took a similar position, in that there may/will be a disconnect between what a given UA (or conforming reader, in their parlance) supports and what a given OS provides for accessibility APIs - or even between available accessibility APIs (eg. MSAA vs. IAccessible)
