If I understand you correctly, I think this is a solvable problem.

Whichever solution we adopt, the xml/sgml rendering thingie will
generate html, so for the final step the browser will have html to
display, whether it's based on a static html file or dynamically
generated from sgml/xml. Will that be sufficient to address the
accessibility you're raising?

I think this is a very important issue for us to resolve
