Not really, because, "accessibility" should always be enabled :-)

The gconf key "/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility" actually means
"assistive technology support" which is a different, more specific
thing.  A user doesn't need to be a user of assistive technology in
order to have different timing needs.

Anyhow, the less stuff we make "special" to accessibility, the better. 
If something really requires a timeout, then the timeout should be
configurable.  In many cases, the better solution is not to use a
timeout at all.
