Again, the idealist in me speaking of course, there is then a need to
get tool/browser *developers* on board to include functionality in
accordance to the spirit of UAAG. It shouldn't always be left up to
web *content* developers to have to make up for shoddy functionality
that browsers and such just can't be bothered to implement. There
needs to be equal lobbying and pressure put on the manufacturers.

IMHO, of course.
