Multiple (infinite) browsers is a different issue from accessibility,
though.  It's possible to make an interactive web application
accessible to people with and without disabilities, using a particular
"designated browser", while not supporting _all_ browsers.  In fact,
in many cases it may even be _easier_ to do it that way.  (For example,
supporting only MSIE means you can take advantage of some of the
IE enhancements that _support_ accessibility, which are not found in
Netscape or Opera.)
