I see two approaches that make sense.

1. We have a11y.org in the logo and as our primary domain.

* We continue to use our established domain name. (We made the "A11y" 
abbreviation popular by using it first.)
* We express through our domain name that we consider our work to be of 
general importance for accessibility
* We have a short domain name that is easy to remember for everyone familiar 
with accessibility.
* Our domain name is less prone to typing errors than anything that 
contains "accessibility" (both for native speakers and for non-native 

* a11y.org looks strange for people not familiar with accessibility.
* Our name (Open Accessibility Group) would not directly correlate with our 
primary domain name.

2. We only use "Open Accessibility" in the logo (no domain name)

* The logo becomes simpler

In both cases, we should register "openaccessibility.org" in addition 
to "a11y.org" and "opena11y.org".
