Well, yes, it loads the corresponding module, thus potentially bringing
bugs that it may have.  It could be argued that these bugs have to get
fixed somehow, though, and exposing them to everybody is a way to have
them noticed and eventually fixed.

In the case of MATE, it is a matter of setting

gsettings set org.mate.interface accessibility true

which is done by the installer.
