It is the standard for ACM workshops and conferences, which includes
ICFP and Haskell Workshop. All these PDF's are produced from a
standard Latex class file. If you wrote to people expressing this, and
did whatever magic is required to make the class file produce both the
current format and a reflowable PDF, you might get somewhere.

For all my papers I have the original source .tex files. If you know
how to convert them into reflowable PDF's (or any other format that is
suitable for people with disabilities) I'm happy to hand them over. I
suspect you'll have more luck going from the original .tex rather than
the PDF.
