Spot on. The biggest mistake I've ever made as a webmaster was building a site the way I would like it to work.
A smart web developer knows not to assume anything about how (or even why) visitors will use their site. If you build a widely accessible site, you create something that is beneficial to the widest possible audience, and in the end most beneficial to you or your client.
@abrodsky: just imagine that the person who gives out IT related refugee grants at the UN decides to visit your site one day on his 320x480 device. Whoops, once in a lifetime opportunity missed...
