Looks great!

Here are couple of comments:

- Entering name etc. seems to be optional. The tool should also state that
they are not demanded.

- Would be nice to know how many steps there are.

- Could we have an option Reset also next to send info?

- The text is long. I would simplify the message text a little bit e.g.: 


This message comes to you from the World Wide Web Consortium's Web
Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI) report tool at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/report resulting from a review carried out by a user
(cc: field) of your Web page or site.

Other: testing the tool

- could the webmaster have an easier ui to these reviews if there are more
of them? A Web page?
