A new issue for TAG perhaps, but the WAI PF WG have been tackling such
issues for a number of months now as part of the work on the XML
Accessibility Guidelines. I refer you to checkpoint 2.1 of the current
working draft:-
- 2.1 Ensure all semantics are captured in markup in a repurposeable form.
XML Accessibility Guidelines
W3C Working Draft 29 August 2001

I'm not sure how much of this is an architecural issue rather than
accessibility; I suppose that this is for the chairs of the relevant groups
to decide.
