Plus, I would add that not only is that going back to 1998 (I only did
them once because a client was adamant about it), but in my view it
may open up a legal challenge.

Not that this is the same thing, but separate isn't equal.. I would be
careful with this kind of solution, even though it would be secondary
to a more accessible website (just my opinion).

This lawsuit came to mind with Scandinavian Airlines
