It would be possible, depending on how we enable it: as I said, when
accessibility was enabled during debian-installer,

- either we enable accessibility for gdm login and the user created
  during installation only, I already have a patch for that.
  Accessibility for other users can then be enabled by running

  gconftool-2 --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true
  gconftool-2 --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/applications/at/visual/startup true

  for these users.

- or we add a package whose installation sets the gconf default to
  accessibility enabled, which will also work for newly created users.
  The problem with that approach is that then you have two ways to
  enable accessibility: either by installing the package, or by enabling
  it by hand in the control panel. If you happen to disable it by hand
  in the control panel, then just installing the package will not
  work.  That's why we'd rather prefer the first solution, which avoids
  bringing confusion in how things are supposed to be enabled.
