Right.  The accessibility-relevant Mouse settings appear to be
Drag-and-Drop (as Calum mentions), cursor type, and the "locate cursor"
feature (which is especially helpful for low vision, or dim laptop
screens like mine.

I am not sure if this is enough reason to put a Mouse dialog launcher
here.  I would guess the launcher button would be preferable to
duplicating the controls.   An alternative might be moving the controls
in the Mouse/Cursors page to the Accessibility capplet, but that would
inconvenience other users.  I think the main objective is making sure
users who need accessibility realize that the mouse settings are
available, and making the mobility-related ones as easy to get to as
possible from the "Accessibility" capplet.
