The prominent first article called "Why WAI-AAA and W3 code validation 
don't equal accessibility" typifies a point of view we often discuss and 
has many of the logical flaws we bemoan.

After stating the premise of the title at some length the author then 
proceeds to cite inaccessibility problems - all of which are covered by 
the very WAI elements he has claimed don't cover "everything".

Interestingly enough the process for replying to the author requires one 
to go through registration hoops, etc. Inaccessibility is largely a 
byproduct of pointless exclusivity.
