I haven't heard any conclusive result, but I believe the discussion has
started indeed. The issue of accessibility has been raised and people
cared for it. I personally don't know either gnome nor xfce (nor am I
able to properly test accessibility) so I wouldn't know. But as far as I
can tell, you can test yourself. Already xfce should be installable on
the same computer running gnome. Instead of starting gnome, you can
start xfce as window manager. It would be valuable for this list (and
the larger discussion) how you experience xfce accessibility.
