We didn't know that you considered it essential to meet your users' goals.

I think all I've seen is this little thread:

That suggests that it's kind of useful, but it's not clear that it's

If the GNOME accessibility team say that they need it, and that they plan to
integrate it into the whole set of accessibilty tools, then the release-team
is likely to just say "OK, you're the experts". However, as a sanity check,
I would like to know that somebody is actually getting some benefit from it
already, so it's not just a theoretical thing.
