Well, the point of 508 is to encourage web developers to create content 
that is accessible to everyone, regardless of disability.  If you try to 
"get around" this without actually incorporating the required 
accessibility aids, then you're not really meeting the requirements of 
508.  Unless there's a problem with the parser at www.cast.org/bobby, 
the best (and most ethical, IMO) thing you can do is conform to 508 as 
required and not subvert the parser.
