Me too. My first reaction to the thread was 'but accessibility slows
things down!' - I've had at least one time in the past where I
experimented with turning on the accessibility features and then days
later realised I'd left them turned on after wondering my desktop was
feeling perceivably slower.

I also think it would be great if we could turn on accessibility by
default, but not if it's an option that people immediately want to turn
