Yes; but I suspect that, from an accessibility PoV, the most we can say
of the latter is that it's the lesser of two evils.
I would also suggest raising the matter on forums used by blind (and
other) people who use text readers - Accessify being one such forum:
* Say "NO!" to compulsory ID Cards: <http://www.no2id.net/>
* Free Our Data: <http://www.freeourdata.org.uk>
* Are you using Microformats, yet: <http://microformats.org/> ?
