JF, you wrote, in part: "This however is not the role of W3C, WAI or WCAG,
and lambasting the W3C because WCAG isn't UAAG serves little purpose other
than to cast blame on the wrong actors. Beat up on the politicians, not
the hard-working volunteers who shoulder the bulk of the WAI efforts."

If nothing else, this discussion highlights the fact that there are more
than likely members of the community of end-users with disabilities (who
we are all ultimately trying to serve in our efforts, and who are not
monitoring e-mail lists like this one) who know not from W3C, WAI or WCAG,
and any number of other acronyms/bodies. All they know is that there are
guidelines out there that are supposed to make their lives better on the
web, yet they continue to experience and are frustrated by accessibility
challenges and/or feel like their specific needs are not being met.
