Time to Cancel WCAG 2? 13 Feb 2007

Joe Clark puts forward the case for cancelling WCAG 2 in an open letter to Tim Berners-Lee and the World Wide Web Consortium:

"The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2) have attracted little or no support from standards-compliant Web developers, grassroots people with disabilities, or really anyone other than the multinational corporations that stack the WCAG Working Group...It is so faulty in its existing form that it is essentially unfixable...The Working Group, and its domination by big business, are the cause of great suspicion and concern...It is time for the W3C to accept reality and cancel the entire project."
