I did, before I published it yesterday. I suggest you read section 2.2.
The document doesn't refer to disabilities throughout the text, but I
promise you the protocol was designed from the ground up with disabled
people in mind.
After all, IM has the potential to be an unusually important part of a
deaf person's life.
