Let me make sure I understand what you are suggesting here...

RATHER THAN doing what you clearly believe is the right thing (ie. having an available accessibility checker), you would instead bastardize the HTML language itself with new rules or elements or attributes or (...)?  Remember, once something is in the language, removal is difficult/impossible.

Wouldn't be in everyone's (users, developers, standards writers, etc.) to simply invest in the creation of an accessibility checker?
