Note that in the case of Webkit we have been tracking the accessibility
related issues. For every module proposed there is a thread on d-d-l.
Everything posted there is taken into account at the module acceptance
If accessibility is not reported as a problem, then we likely will not
notice that there is a problem. However, nobody needs to be on the
release-team to change that. We often try to follow the consensus on
d-d-l. So to contribute right now, just raise when something is an issue
(accessibility or anything else).

For WebKit the delay in accepting for a large part was accessibility,
this was also mentioned when we rejected it. This was also mentioned
when it was proposed again:
