The language seems to be drifting towards an assumption that enabling
accessibility is required to be on a program (content) by program
basis, and that a UI which enabled the user to set 'preferences'
(when a program offers captions, I would like to see them), is less
recognized. I assume that actually people with accessibility needs
would *rather* configure their needs into the system just once, and
after that have it 'do the right thing'. Or am I missing something?
