It looks like there is already a lot of trouble with the new 
accessibility rules (or as I'm beginning to think of them, "when is 
public not really public?") in the Jigsaw prototype.  Overall the 
compatibility story is looking not very compelling at the moment; I 
wonder if some of these things should be revisited.
