Which btw is exactly the strategy the IDPF just used in publishing its new Accessibility 1.0 specification, which is based on W3C accessibility specs (WCAG, WAI-ARIA, etc.): it's deliberately a separate spec from EPUB 3.n so it's referenceable not only by any EPUB-family spec but external specs as well (e.g., procurement specifications for universities).

To some extent perhaps - although for HTML (say) we have WCAG and other documents, a separate suite of publications.

I agree that we (W3C) need to end up with such descriptions, but it doesn't all have to be in PWP and probably shouldn't be, so that it can be updated at different rates and by different people.
