Well, I'll let Bill share his views on both those points at his
convenience, as he's more familiar with the 508 requirements than I. 
But it's the same principle the accessibility guys and gals have been
applying to all the other apps they've tackled that use (or allow you to
use) custom fonts: if somebody needs special fonts and colours, they
should be able to change them all at once, desktop-wide, with one
setting for each.  This even works on the window manager title bar now
if you use metacity, which is way cool  :)
