New Dutch accessibility "law"

(Sorry if this has been mentioned in this list and I've just missed it.)

I just read about accessibility "law" (more exactly, decree or rule) in
the Netherlands. For info in English on it, see the blog entry

As I comment in the blog, "The Dutch rules look really impressive and well
thought-of in general, though perhaps a bit too extremistic (like
disallowing all deprecated markup). It is modern in the sense of promoting
accessibility as understood nowadays, as opposite to the stagnated (and
partly misguided) W3C WAI rules."
