I think you will get more push-back from requiring an on-page solution, and in comparison pushing for a *well scoped* set of semantics would be easier and better.
[Jason] I agree, with the emphasis decidedly on “well scoped”, “precisely defined”, “broadly applicable across the Web” and “efficacious when supported by assistive technology”. If such a solution were in place (and I would argue it isn’t yet), it would be much easier to argue for an extension of the markup and metadata requirements of WCAG.
As I’ve argued earlier in this discussion, I think the technology, the implementation, and the evidence of efficacy need to precede the WCAG integration.
