I think this is a great idea. I have been trying to find time to work on
templates that would be a good basis for more accessible documents.
These would be templates that take into account the techniques described
at <http://adod.idrc.ocad.ca/oowriter> (to which I heavily contributed).
This needn't be a lot of work, for example, ensuring sufficient contrast
in styles for headings and making sure that the language settings make
sense (e.g. the inline style "Internet Link" has no language by
default). This is an area where I would like to help - or I can
contribute some templates myself.

Best regards,

Christophe Strobbe
