Here is a proposed rewording for the accessibility impact section 
requested of Push API:

Accessibility Considerations

Push API features introduce a number of needs for a "Do Not Disturb" 
functionality in various web applications, whether accessed via mobile 
device or desktop browser. This functionality should be addressed by the 
Web Notifications specificaton. Web Notifications currently does not 
provide this feature but an issue has been filed requesting the feature:

[URI of issue]

Meanwhile, until the use cases described in this issue are appropriately 
addressed, implementors of this specification should be aware that 
accessibility problems might be triggered by implementations of this 
specification and attempt to minimize their impact.
