SELFISH REASON #2: Avoiding Expensive Lawsuits 
Begging your pardon - but this is IMHO the worst "incentive". 
I like the the Human Factors:
SELFISH REASON #4: The Buying Power of People with Di$abilities 
SELFISH REASON #6: What Will The Web Be Like When I'm 65? 
SELFISH REASON #7: Nobody Plans to be Disabled

One in 5 people in the World is disAbled
The problem I see is that there is no feedback, no objections to these 
articles and attitudes ***from the people who NEED accessible websites***.
Most probably do not know the effort that has been put into it for them and 
would be incensed by the replies these "webmasters" make.
Christmas Tree lights!
