The Section 508 Revised Standards now include a few ATAG requirements 
- see Revised 508 Authoring Tools Checkpoints 
http://www-03.ibm.com/able/guidelines/ci162/accessibility_checklist.html#authoring

So, although ATAG Part A is not explicitly referenced in 508, it is 
implied or as some would say: "equivalent" because the software or web app 
must comply with WCAG,  and, the 5 additional requirements, mostly from 
part B of ATAG,  are listed in the reference above.

Sean,
 
Elements of ATAG are intrinsically covered by QA procedures, but as far as 
I know, ATAG is not directly referenced.

Matt,
 
Has Facebook utilised the ATAG standard for your development platforms and 
what about your flagship product? Just trying to determine how many 
vendors are utilising the standard and how effective it is,  plus  level 
of educations and awareness is out there.
