Discussion on: Comebacks for Five (Wrong) Arguments Against Accessibility

Nice write-up.
I also see #2 & 4 being used against security as well as accessibility. Which is probably why I'm taking on both as my main championing points in my Web Developer growth plan.
Security and accessibility are both needed from the start, even if you think your audience won't need/use it. Adding them in later on is always harder later down the road, which is why they are just dropped.
And yes, building security into the app/website/whatever is also often seen as 'too hard', when in fact, it's really just about considering all use cases and planning/coding for it (same for #a11y).
