The problem is that you can't universally say "this is useable, and this is not"

The situation might change in some cases, i.e., there is active work
to get at least the crucial parts of GNOME accessible.  So we would
invest time in filtering out stuff we later need to "unfilter"

I like the "User interface" categories for this.  One should be easily
able to filter out all Graphical stuff by excluding packages which
are Tagged GNOME or KDE.  That by itself is a huge improvement over
the current situation.

What I'd like to see though is a Tag Screenreader.  screader, brltty,
emacspeak and speakup come to mind which would really like to be in that
