I can't see, given the Pernese attitude about disabilities, that a blind or deaf person would ever get on a hatching ground to impress. Of course, Dragons have chosen from the audience on occassion.
If it were some minor tidbit, I'd agree. But this is something that has remained fairly consistant in all her interviews over the years, and the ONLY reason I can think of to suddenly toss that out the window is Todd.
