IMHO, web accessibility does not include mobile devices, i.e.

The are two different beasts. As one who develops web sites, I would have
to code up a completely different set of templates and application
back-end to handle a mobile phone interface properly. Or am I being too 20th century?

Beyond a different style sheet or two, I certainly would not want to double
my work. Unless it was required of the web site.

Accessibility is one thing. Phones are another kettle of conundrums.
