AJAXcat and AJAXlists have nothing to do with image uploading (about  
which I am ignorant).  They are responsible for adding categories on  
the fly and deleting things from administration lists (like comments  
etc.), respectively.

I agree with you, Mike, wholeheartedly, but you're referring to a  
separate problem.  Though if you could look into any accessibility  
issues with AJAXcats/lists, I'd be happy to help address any problems  
you find.
