Thanks for all the replies everyone!

A follow-up for Patrick and anyone else that uses screen readers on a
daily basis: Do you prefer that the site name be included as the first
header on each page or is that already implied by the TITLE tag and/or
the fact that you know what site you are at and therefore is annoyingly
redundant? Or, is the consensus that consistency trumps this issue (as
it seems the non-screen-reader-users among us seem to agree).
