Since the 508 standards do apply to procurement - indeed it is "the
manufacturer's product that fails or succeeds" in conforming to the
standards. How the agency uses/deploys the product can also conform or not
conform to the 508 requirements. The challenge will be in writing the
standards so they address both clearly without allowing unintended "outs"
and causing overkill requirements.

It's not the manufacturer's product that fails or succeeds. It's how the
agency uses it. The manufacturer is only supposed to provide an
offering that allows the agency to use a PC interface.
Nothing in the straw man says anything about how
non-disabled people can use the device -- we're not forcing anyone to
use a PC to control the copier when they could easily do it by buttons.
