The kind of issue isn't specific indeed. But the consequence is
specific: the result is that some people can not use Debian any more at
all. That's very different from just missing a program you really want

I'm not sure to understand what you meant exactly here.
debian-accessibility wasn't aware of the RM request before it was
processed. Realizing that and having to go through NEW again is not
technically hard, sure, but it takes a lot of energy to go pass the
frustration that it happened at all.
