As discussed in

There is now also a single-page description at

When you say give it a tough test, do you mean you have some standard
test cases, or just that you're an unforgiving critic?

The accessibility proxy is still experimental work-in-progress (I only
started hacking on it this week!), but Frames linearisation is a
flagship capability that has worked well in my (few) testcases.
So there are really two things to look at: the fundamental one is
whether what it's doing makes sense; the practical one is to let me
know when you find a URL that breaks it (and there are certainly some).

Most interesting is to combine the two: find URLs where the software
works as-designed but does nothing (or worse) for accessibility.
Those are the ones I really need to tackle!
