Ok, thanks for the explanation.

Anyway, just in case, Im not arguing in order to maintain the current
status quo.

I also think that having the accessibility support as a isolated
loadable plugin has more drawbacks that advantages, and on a ideal
world it would be on gtk itself since the beginning, and that was a
good thing for clutter.

Just stating that just make the movement could mean a considerable
effort. And as the main reason of lacking the marvellously working
accessible desktop was the lack of a constant workforce, just guessing
where we should put the effort.
