This is the constant fight for the leaders of the web standards 
movement. Sadly the problems still exist that frustrate handicapped 
users. Truth be told, it is hard, even for those of us that try to 
maintain full accessibility, to hit all those goals every time. There 
are a lot a checkboxes to tick to hit full 501c3 compatibility.

Yup. If you encounter a site that gets a lot of public use and is 
generally handicap inaccessible, you could get a group of similar users 
to put together a class action lawsuit. It worked for getting Target's 
website modified.
