Yes, in a word. This is an agreement reached through the FSG
Accessibility WG.

More detail is available in the audio archives of our Face To Face this
past January:


The sessions you want for this topic are the AT-SPI sessions.

The short version of what is agreed is that the AT-SPI will provide the
mechanism for passing data between AT and accessibility aware
applications. We have agreed on a "Many Worlds" concept for how those
messages might be passed to the AT-SPI from the applications. For
instance, KDE will likely implement over dbus, while Gnome is using
Corba. But these are the "under the hood" details that don't really
matter to AT (like Gnopernicus, Gok, or some other AT) as long as it
uses the AT-SPI.

Eventually, we will have written transcripts from the FSG meeting. I
just haven't finished the transcriptions yet.
