I don't see this as a job for guidelines.

Requirements from disability use cases, yes.

But it is a job for a protocol. A framework for
negotiation/adjudication/incremental-binding of the final concrete
user experience.

The proposed charter for the Ubiquitous Web Applications working
group addresses at least the browser/script/markup-language
layers. These are the people who brought you the XML-flavored
alternative to PHP as the server-side phase of [potentially incremental]
