The Social Contract says

“Our priorities are our users and free software

We will be guided by the needs of our users and the free software
community. We will place their interests first in our priorities. We
will support the needs of our users for operation in many different
kinds of computing environments.”

So in a sense this already includes accessibility, I don't think we'd
get this modified. Perhaps rather something could be got into the Debian

That being said, what should be done before that is documenting things,
since one can't impose something which is not documented. As a reminder,
the TODO list of https://wiki.debian.org/accessibility-devel includes
adding accessibility things into the developer's reference document, the
NM process.  I'd say that should be done and advertized before thinking
about formalizing anything.
