So, to be clear, the final version of the proposed wording is:

This specification has no defined user interface. Consequently, there are
no specific accessibility requirements on implementations. However, to the
extent that an implementation provides user interactions to support this
specification, the implementation must ensure that the interface is exposed
to the platform accessibility API. Moreover, implementors should take into
consideration the needs of their users with varying abilities when
designing solutions that implement this specification. For example, the use
of biometric authentication techniques should be varied enough to allow for
people with widely differing physical abilities.
