Well, I think that LightDM requirements are not the point here (and
the reality is that LightDM current implementation/code is not
accessible). The point are the requirements that any application to be
included in GNOME:
Accessibility: Accessibility is a core value of GNOME. The app is
compliant with a11y documentation to as great an extent as possible,
and the maintainers have made good faith efforts to fix all a11y bugs
filed in a timely manner by the a11y team. Please take the time to do
a 15 minute accessibility smoke test on your GUI if your module
includes a GUI.

I know that we broke this rule for GNOME 3 with gnome-shell, but that
was a very special situation and the plan is to fix it for GNOME 3.2.

Also please remember that the login manager is a very special
application that enables the user to start using the computer and if
it is not accessible, the whole desktop won't be.
