Do you think he meant usability? He's obviously not talking about accessibility in the sense of being screen-reader friendly. On the other hand, what is accessibility, if not designing with awareness of a site's ability to function as a platform, for users and their devices and external places to display information?
Or was he talking about availability for use?
Am I making sense?

I think he chose the right word, because what he's on about isn't that you can't use the data, but that you can't access it at all in many cases, and can't access it with the right means (API) to do anything.
I sort of wish he'd used the word "usability" in where he writes about "accessibility."
Usability follows Accessibility, and of course they have many crossovers and no clear boundaries, but you only worry about the usability of something you can actually access at all.
