They were merged into the regular Plone 4.2 series; so no more separate
products. But that only covers standard portlets and layout.

If we use a fancy new theme, that needs to be checked.

And it has to be looked at in the actual content as well; accessibility
testing also counts it as wrong if you use styles non-semantically
correct, or don't provide alt-tags for your images, for instance. So
end-results have to be checked by humans anyway.

Luckily, it's not a huge process to check this; vanilla Plone gives you
an excellent headstart, and any modifications will be minor. It's just
something to get into the process, no  big obstacle.

And can be done quite a the end, so no blocker.
