Accessibility at the browser level for those with disabilities

As the "war" over the best form of html continues it's clear there will be diverse forms of html employed for years to come. Developers are constantly working backwards, all from different perspectives to try to achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities. There are simply too many cooks in the kitchen. It seems to me that content accessbility is best addressed at the browser level because this is where specific user needs come into play. Some progress has already been made in recent years but it certainly seems well within the capability of browser deployers to create a plug-in based based browser model that would address key needs of persons with cogntiive or physical disabilities. This would then give developers a more consistent way to address this area of accessibility. 508 needs to be addressed at the browser level, it would be far moe consistent than a million developer "chefs".
