That seems pretty extreme.  For one, it seems like more of the ridiculous
lawsuit-happy culture we live in (at least those in the US do)..  I believe
Clint Eastwood won when he was recently sued under the ADA.  (The ADA gives no
_time_ for people to perform required repairs, just lawsuits which sometimes 
end up giving huge damages awards.)

Also, why should everyone else be forced to use a commercial browser?  What if
we _prefer_ to use a noncommercial browser.  (Even for GUI browsing at work,
I use iCab, a minority browser, most of the time.. I only use IE for a VERY 
few sites, and as iCab is improving that number is going down.)

I sure hope *someone* adds some JavaScript capability to a text mode browser.
