I agree on one level, it does not do a lot for accessibility because the
issue of styling native elements still remains. I don't quite understand
how sub-classing does not help accessibility, when in the cases of simple
controls that have added custom features, re-using a button or a checkbox
etc rather than buidling it from scratch appears to be useful for
accessibility and other reasons.

note: this is not an argument for is= :-)
