Widget Accessibility

Hi there,
I've been looking through the widget specifications specifically  
'Widgets 1.0: The Widget Landscape (Q1 2008)' - Figure 1 at http:// 

I wonder if there is any concept of an accessibility bridge in either  
the widget of web application specifications. I was thinking of  
something like the Java Accessibility Bridge which links the code to  
the interpreter and on to the OS. If there is the concept of the Web  
as an application Platform then are there any similar concepts for  
making accessibility work in a uniform way - built-in at the start as  
opposed to an ARIA addition?
