"It means that the Web is designed so that people with disabilities can 
perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with it effectively, as 
well as create and contribute content to the Web"

Somehow, I hope that "contributing content" isn't teased out as a 
separate function, somehow different (and by implication less likely?) 
from "accessibility".

My anecdotal survey of us elitists shows that there is a (however 
subtle) perception that those of us who know how to get stuff onto the 
Web are in a different caste than those who "merely" read from or Google 
with it. In many cases one is in fact "contributing content" just by 
surfing!

In the best sense, the "form" one fills out is an Authoring Tool, the 
box wherein search keys are put is an Authoring Tool. So, in summary, 
ask not for whom the ATAG tolls: it tolls for thee. We are all content 
providers.

Love.
