I do not use Flickr, but I do use Picasaweb, which I believe
is analogous.  On Picasaweb, albums can be public or private.
Would those who seek to differentiate between public and
private facilities in terms of accessibility therefore
accept that a /public/ album is /public/, and must therefore
meet all legal accessibility requirements ?
