Right, it seems the discussion we had with Willie was with outdated or
incorrect data, so let's step back and look at the original problem

We'd like to be able to enable/disable a11y in applications without a
session restart, and, if possible, when deactivated, that the modules
are unloaded and all a11y related functionality is torn down.

The goal is to make it easier for developers that do not need a11y to
test their applications with things like screen readers and other a11y

What is missing for this to work? Can we remove the "you need to restart
your session" from the a11y capplet in the control-center?
