AFAICT, there has not been a position taken on callouts.  The
impaired-reader issue is best solved by adding audio content because
even with text-to-audio support NONE of the pictures and such can be
rendered to audio, though pehaps the <textobject> tag might be picked
up.  DocBook has special audio-related tags when or if we get round
to making an audio translation of the material.

Perhaps we could get Garrett LeSage, who did the "stylesheet-images/"
icons for us, to render some peachy-keen callout digits.  If not, I
could probably SVG a few.

As for the crappy archive searches: YES!  My solution was to get a
gmail.com account and subscribe to the list from there in addition to
my "working" account on my desktop.  That lets me use their nifty
search tools to scan the archives.
