Note that when we say Gnome is fine enough, it's because we are aware of the fact Debian won't choose Mate by default and that the hesitation is between gnome and xfce. And from this point of view, yes, gnome is better. But the fact is it is still hard to use, and MATE is much more suit when we try to have a universal desktop with braille, speech and magnifying, in particular due to its visual customization capabilities, disappeared in gnome.
thats why it is a good idea, instead of proposing to a low visual or blind user a bad experience he will feel too complex, not suitable, etc, to propose to it immediately Mate if we know he uses braille or seppch, so that the user experinece to be directly good. let's add also that it is relevant given otherwise, the screen=black setting in the installer (which displays a contrast interface) is not present at reboot. With mate, even if not present, the user can easily find again contrast and other visual costomisations.
