Good question, and one which deserves an answer. Since everyone is
already pushing tools, and because people seem to enjoy using them,
I think it's important to cover them in the course. Plus using a tool
that can be set for "only single-A" or whatever allows for an easier
introduction to the concepts of testing and repairing web sites than
simply throwing them into the middle of all of WCAG 1.0.
