But if this requires both content authors AND user agent developers to 
make changes, it can't just be made a requirement for content authors in 
WCAG in the hope that user agents will then follow suit and actually 
support whatever is proposed here.

It's, yet again, a chicken and egg problem...which can't be tackled by 
just mandating that authors need to do something speculatively in the 
hope that user agents will then act on it eventually.
