I do not believe that I or anyone in the accessibilty group is making
such demands.

The needs of all users should be taken into account IMO.  If it comes to
a binary 'completely broken/not-broken' decision between a11y and i18n,
then, yes, I think i18n carries more clout.  But to take the other
extreme, if it's a matter of degree, it's not right to regress horribly
for the few in exchange for modest improvement for the many.

By definition if the software doesn't work for some of our users, they
probably won't be our users for long.
