This is the standard position that marketing people will take; if
there is some technology that allows the blind to access their site,
they will consider they have met any legal obligations for
accessibility.  This will be a moving target, especially as JAWS uses
IE for its scripting support.

Limited support might cope with Domino, as their way of doing onclicks
with links to the non-existent null fragment (href="#") may not change
enough to make it difficult to extract the real link.  However anything
short of a full IE like object model (full frames support, etc.) is likely
to break for the "creative" designers.  That's a complete re-write, not
limited support.
