Whenever possible, it should be encouraged to integrate into society as a whole, either by working around the disability, or working with it. Forming exclusionary "cliques" just because they are defective is a guaranteed way to further marginalize these people. "Deaf Culture" can die to the sound of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

The exact same argument can be used for alchol intoxication. When I got my DUI, I blew a .227, (almost 3 times the legal limit). I could pass the field sobriety test no problem, but since there was a "faint odor of alcohol", I was taken downtown to blow in the breathalyzer. Should I be allowed to go unimpeded, simply because I can "hold my liquor"?

In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
