Well, notice that I'm agree with Mario when he explains that you can't match
the needs for all desired situations.

Beginning with providing an Assistive TEch button in tasksel (Orca in fact)
should be a good begin; but after that it would be nice to implement it so
that tasksel knows more precisely what the need is.
Also there are not 120000 possible combinations regarding accessibility
and/or assistive tech.

Well I see it in another way: sighted persons doesn't need more work to have
Gnome installed, they just mark it in tasksel, and that's it;
for specifi users therr are server-items in tasksel so that responds to some
specific needs.

Its logical then taht Accessibility (or begin with Asssitive Technology /
Orca) should be provided as a specifi need for a specifi user-type.

That's it.
