Porches aren't necessarily inaccessible. Mine, and most of the porches here at Takoma Village, are level with the sidewalk and form no barrier to a wheelchair.

You are right about porches being "wonderful transitional
spaces."  However, they have a (to my mind serious) drawback. That is, they
make every unit that has one inaccessible to persons in wheelchairs
(unless, of course the porches are in the unit's "back yard) and the front
of the unit is on grade, but then they only are transitional between the
unit and its semiprivate "backyard." if there is one.)
