Yeah, I agree about the W3C stuff and that's why I really am fighting 
hard to make sure we don't end up like them,  with these crazy 
guidelines that are completely inaccessible to anyone trying make a 
simple webpage (game). You might want to make an accessible website 
but who wants to read through manuals of stuff that looks more like 
machine code than "guidelines."
