I'm writing a paper on what is hindering the adoption of WCAG 2.0 and though I have a number of factors in mind already, I would like the document to be as comprehensive as possible.  

So I'm hoping maybe people here can give me further insights into the factors you think are hindering the adoption of WCAG 2.0.  

Thanks in Advance,

Adam, I'm writing a very similar paper and would be very interested in your findings. Our team hasn't started research, yet.

WCAG 1.X is still very confusing for a lot of designers who don't code html and CSS. I know WCAG rules since they started it but it's because I was very interested by the technical aspect of accessibility. The version 2.0 is bigger, more complex and of course, the market do not ask for more accessible apps and web sites. That doesn't help.

For me, WCAG is one of a lot of standard that I need to know but no one asked me to learn it. I've did it by my self because I want the measure the quality of my work.
