Hi Calum:

I accept your logic from a commonsense approach; my hunch is that any
timeout longer than 1 minute is probably not a major accessibility
problem (though I may be missing some important user scenario here). 
HOWEVER, the legal requirements for accessibility, at least in the US,
don't make that distinction, and thus any distro that wanted to meet
accessibility regulations would probably be obliged to patch the feature
