continue.  That work can become easier as better LaTeX documents are

I agree with this, especially the part about "better LaTeX documents...."
But I have a question. Valuable LaTeX documents often describe research that
has cost a lot of time and effort on the part of researchers as well as
monetary and other costs on the part of  supporting institutions.  My
question is whether any extra effort required to make these documents more
amenable to existing tools for automatic conversion to other formats,
including accessible ones, would add significantly to their total cost.  It
doesn't make sense to me that researchers who have the resources to do
valuable research wouldn't be willing  to follow available standards to
ensure the  usefulness of the documentation.
