Sure, I think it's a good idea.

How about getComputedAccessibleText next?

In both Blink and WebKit I imagine we'll have to think about efficiency
when implementing this - typically we enable accessibility lazily and then
leave it on - at least for that page. We'd want to use the real
accessibility code to compute this, but then disable accessibility support
and clean up if it wasn't enabled previously.
