So Just Who Is "All"?

I'm proofreading a book for work now. As I so often do, I checked th
freely publicly-searchable NLS catalog to see if the book had already
been produced in braille. Not terribly surprisingly, it had. But because
NLS refuses to sell books outside of the States, we are forced to redo
what has already been done: if a student wants to read this book here,
we have to braille it ourselves even though the work has already been
done. NLS's slogan is "that all may read". The slogan is a very un-funny
joke.
