Why?

Again, see responsive images example. Your perceptions are incorrect. You make what you will from a CG - there are no rules and everyone is free to participate.

Yes, but the Web Platform gives you that for free. It's built into the platform: we don't need to be shown that (we know it's accessible - because that's how we engineered it). What's more interesting is showing where it's not being accessible to students, or open, etc. For example, it's quite sad that PDFs are still being shared so much in the education sphere. Would be good to find out why and hopefully the Web can put an end to that.
