It appears that advisory text against doing this will likely suffice - there
does not appear to be any actual implementation of this today. In conversation
with David Dorwin at TPAC, I will return to the accessibility Task force and we
will supply draft author advisory text that can be added to the specification.
David if you want to file a bug, I can respond to that, or I can respond via
this bug - your call.

I believe this is out of scope for accessibility concerns. I will leave it to
others to file a bug and respond
