Joe Clark: To Hell with WCAG 2

I missed this ALA piece by Joe Clark on the W3C’s updated Web Content Accessibility Guidelines back in May:

The proposed new WCAG 2.0 is the result of five long yearsโ€™ work by a Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) committee that never quite got its act together. In an effort to be all things to all web content, the fundamentals of WCAG 2 are nearly impossible for a working standards-compliant developer to understand. WCAG 2 backtracks on basics of responsible web development that are well accepted by standardistas. WCAG 2 is not enough of an improvement and was not worth the wait.
