Smart companies will put industry pressure on the creators of their
software to promote accessibility, so that they don't have to worry
about facing lawsuits because of the software they buy.

Does the scenario you describe above exist in practice today?  I
think it might be better to look at what companies ARE doing rather
than what they COULD be doing or SHOULD be doing; so examples (and
I don't doubt they exist) would be useful.
