Have you look at similar front-end frameworks that have incorporated 
accessibility, such as Open Ajax - see http://oaa-accessibility.org/

I do not know of any organizations working with Zurb's Foundation.  If 
it's not mainstream and accessible, why work on it (unless it is also 
being specifically designed for a narrow user group, like AAA success 
criteria could be applied to it?

Subject:        WCAG 2.0 AA and Zurb Foundation

Does anyone know of organizations working with Zurb's Foundation to create 
a web application frontend framework of UI components that is 
intentionally designed to be conformant with WCAG 2.0 AA (I'm mindful that 
some responsibilities would still reside with the user of the framework)

Such a group would be mindful of techniques to meet the specific success 
criteria, cognizant of the need for both automated and manual tests, and 
mindful of the need for regression testing before integrating changes into 
the code base.

An example of a strong statement of WCAG conformance might be something 
like the Section 508 statement here:


"The Assets.CMS.Gov website is tested on an iterative basis for 
conformance with the Section 508 requirements"

Example organizations might be: governmental agencies or non-profits 
organizations in the US, United Kingdom, or Europe.
