As I have said before, I think the mere fact that testing with users 
with disabilities has taken place should not be rewarded since it does 
not in itself change the quality of the site under test. An awful site 
stays awful even after a lot of user testing. If then, as a result of 
such testing, the accessibility and/or usability is improved, that 
should impact also the conformance to measurable criteria (whether 
absolute or score-based) - and I am happy to see those criteria extended 
to realms so far difficult to measure.
