Great idea -- A thought that I had about structuring the 
book was to structure it closely to the HCII Conference 
paper (aka the Vegas Paper). We'll have that on the website 
when it's finalized. But one main section is on Case 
Studies. It would be great to focus on "best practices" -- 
case studies of how the game industry has been addressing 
accessibility and how game players have created their own 
systems to create an accessible gaming experience for them.
