It leaves them failing to meet level A.

the simplest approach would be to replicate the javascript on the server
side, with some extensions to pass on whether the information has been
verified or not.

By the way, it probably makes more sense to ask techical questions on either
the Interest group list w3c-wai-ig@w3.org (archived at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-ig publicly available) where you
are looking for rough ideas about how to solve a (presumably) known problem,
or directly ask the working group where the answer is really unclear or you
think there is an issue that needs to be addressed for the development of
WCAG - w3c-wai-gl@w3.org (archives

  Any advice?  Andrew
