+1 on the idea of a wp-accessibility list.

What a great thought, to connect people who know a lot about 
accessibility, ATAG, WCAG, etc. and could identify the issues (but not 
necessarily fix them), with other people who care and have the 
time/knowledge to patch WP but not the accessibility domain knowledge 
to know what should be done (such as myself).


ps: If Automattic declines to start a new list, we could also get one 
going easily on Google Groups. And if we did that, we could still list 
it on the Mailing Lists page of the Codex (it's a Wiki). Just a thought.
