Not sure about it (while I haven't tested caribou lately). An "assistive tool for mobility impaired people" and a "keyboard on screen" are not the same thing. Do you remember GOK? It is a powerful a11y tool, that allows you to entry text, focus windows, select menu entries and toolbar items even if the only action you can perform is push a switch[1]. And it was poorly (visually) integrated in GNOME 2[2]. If integration means to simply have a�stylish keyboard for tablet, I've to disagree.

By instinct I'm for this. The a11y status icon was introduced as a "major" feature for GNOME 3. This will force us to keep this promise ASAP. But of course I've to admit GNOME 3.0.0 will be a really young release, so the most valuable solution is:
