I don't want to beat this too much, but the federal goernment does
make the effort to accomodate colorblind people as well as people with
more serious disabilites.

In the example of colorblindness, none of our IT stuff can rely
*solely* on color to provide information.

in case you're curious, the regulation is called section 508. here's
a web site that discusses it.
